Connections for industryEmbedded networksWinding up an embedded network and transfer to distributor connection

An existing embedded network owner (ENO) body corporate owner’s corporation may request that the site is re-arranged so that all tenants are connected to the distributors electricity network and can choose their own retailer.

The embedded network ceases to exist, the parent meter and its NMI is abolished, and a new metering/NMI established for each tenant who become on-market customers of the distributor.

Connecting to the distributor network may require some customer-owned infrastructure upgrades to enable a compliant connection and metering arrangements.

Winding up of an embedded network connection requires:

  • Written request from the embedded network owner to convert the site to the distributors on-market metering
  • New connection process each for tenant
  • Meters installed and allocated of NMIs
