Pre-installation Electricity Network connection approval
- On your behalf, ZEN will submit a distribution generation application to your electricity network company to connect to their network
- The network company will review the application and, provided it meets all regulations, approve the connection of your solar energy system
- If a connection fee is payable to the network company, this will be paid on your behalf by ZEN and is included in your quotation (unless specified as excluded).
Pre-installation Electricity Retailer approval
Upon receiving approval from your electricity network company, ZEN will work with your chosen energy retailer to finalise your distributed generation agreement. This will include the installation of an import/export meter, which is swapped out with your existing electricity meter (unless you already have on in place).
Here’s the big one! On installation day, ZEN Energy qualified installers will perform a final review of your solar system to be installed and any necessary site specific factors. Once the boxes are ticked, your home will be wired for solar, the panels and racking will be installed, the inverter (and batteries, if applicable) will be connected and the system will be commissioned.
Following system commissioning, final approval needs to be received from an independent inspector before your system can go live. Once received, the system is switched on.
Congratulations! You are now enjoying clean, free solar energy.
Typically, the actual installation usually takes about a day for a grid-tied system, and up to two or more days for a more advanced hybrid or off-grid system, depending on the system size.
