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