Commercial, Business or Industrial Connection Application

What is a Commercial, Business or Industrial Connection Application?

If you are negotiating to establish single/multiple supply points for your proposed Commercial, Industrial or Business location (greenfield development and/or staged development of an existing development) this application is the right one for you. 

You can select the Contestability option at the application stage and include the Accredited Service Provider (ASP) you are intending to engage for design purposes. If you are not ready to select your Accredited Service Provider at this stage, you will have an option to download a list of Accredited Service Providers and advise your project manager after application submission. 
Note: Any design and construction contractors involved in such works must be accredited by AusNet Services. This accreditation recognises that they have been assessed to have the skills and the knowledge to carryout works on the AusNet Services network to our technical, quality and safety standards.

You are required to pay a fee to proceed with this application to obtain a Firm Offer or Interconnection Offer. If you wish to obtain an indicative price, select the Preliminary Estimate option on the application, and then answer “Yes” for us to provide both Design and Construction Services. 
Preliminary Estimates are indicative, meaning the price generated is an office-based assessment.
A Preliminary Estimate is valid for 30 days and has an upfront, non-refundable* fee.
*Note: Preliminary Estimate fees paid are non-refundable, however, will be deducted from the cost of the electricity supply works if you proceed with the proposal.
