Renewable energy system connection application form

This is an application to connect your renewable energy system to Horizon Power’s electricity network or make changes to your existing renewable energy system. Please make sure that you carefully read the information and documents on this page and seek advice if you do not understand any part of them.

We will assess your application and either provide you with written approval or inform you that Horizon Power does not accept your application and a summary of the reasons why. Please seek assistance from your installer or authorised representative to complete this form. If you have any questions about this application, please email renewables@horizonpower.com.au.

The Renewable Energy Buyback agreement has three key components:

  1. The application form: this form, which you must complete. 
  1. The contract: if your application is accepted, then you will enter into a contract with Horizon Power, and must comply with the terms and conditions contained in it (see below). 
  1. The Technical Requirements document: this sets out the Technical Requirements that you must comply with under your contract with Horizon Power. This will be either the Basic Micro EG or LV EG Connection Technical Requirements, depending on the size of the system you choose to install. You may be required to include Generation Management details in your application.

A breach of a Technical Requirement may constitute a breach of your contract. Importantly, if your application is accepted, you must comply with your contract and the Technical Requirements, even if you do not intend to sell any excess electricity to Horizon Power.

Please note the changes to Horizon Power’s Technical Requirements and eligibility rules, effective 1 July 2019. <link to more info about changes>
