Customer Declaration & Acceptance

This application form must be named and dated by the party seeking to become the Distributed Generator, i.e. the holder of the ICP and not the installer.

I hereby apply to connect a Distributed Generator to the WEL network and confirm that the above information is correct and that the Generator shall at all times be operated in accordance with all WEL connection and operational standards, including arranging with my electricity retailer for import/export metering to be installed in line with WEL’s standards and the Electricity Industry Participation Code 2010, Part 10 – Metering.

I confirm that I will not connect any generation until I have received written approval from WEL and must provide post installation documentation within 10 business days of connection.

I agree to WEL notifying the nominated energy retailer of the approved DG connection including the new price category that will apply.

I agree to pay the DG application fee and any other processing fees that may apply, to WEL Networks.
