Connecting a Generator to operate in parallel with the Electricity Network
Generators that operate in parallel with the electricity distribution system, even for a brief period, are referred to as Paralleled Generation. These generators would typically be used by businesses to reduce their electricity import at certain times or used for peak-lopping or peak-shaving schemes. In general these generators cannot be used to export electricity onto the electrical distribution system.
With the exception of customers who have the status of Exporting Auto-producers, in general 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, go to Connect a Renewable Generator or go to Connect a Micro-Generator.
