What is an Embedded Network?
An embedded network is formed when the connection point between the End Users and the distribution network becomes a parent connection point and multiple End User connection points become child connection points, each with their own meters. Typically apartment blocks, retirement villages, caravan parks and shopping centres.
The electrical installation is configured in such a way as to enable the owner of the site to on-sell energy to all the occupants. This is known as an embedded network (EN).
