Connecting a Non-Exporting Generator to the Electricity Network

Non-Exporting (MEC=0) Generators, operate in parallel with the electricity distribution system.  These generators cannot be used to export electricity onto the electricity network or to supply or sell electricity via the distribution network.  

If you wish to connect a generator that is intended to export energy onto the electricity network, please go to Connect a Renewable and Embedded Generator  or  Connect a Micro-Generator.

 

NOTE:

There is currently no fee associated with applications for non-exporting generators operating in parallel with the electricity distribution system.

Note

For Connections made after September 2018 some Distribution Code Conditions may change, arising from the need to be aligned with European Network Codes.  For more information on this see our European Network Codes page at the link below.
