Embedded networks

Apartment blocks, retirement villages, caravan parks and shopping centres are all examples of embedded networks.

These are formed when the connection point to our distribution network functions like a parent connection point which then has multiple end-user connection points (or children) linked in. Each of the end-user connections has their own meters to measure electricity consumption.

In this structure, the electrical installation is configured in such a way that the owner of the site (for example, a shopping centre manager), can on-sell electricity to all the occupants.

The connection process varies depending on the type of embedded network. Please select from the list below.
