5.3.9 Process – Altering a generating system

Connection Applicants must submit a Connection Application/Alteration form to begin the process of proposing to alter an existing generating system. The Altering of a Generating System procedure is a formal process under Clause 5.3 and is commonly referred to as the 5.3.9 Process.

From this point onwards, the process is prescribed by Chapter 5 of the Rules. Refer to the AEMC National Electricity Rules Chapter 5, Clause 5.3.9 for more details on the procedure to be followed.

Victorian Planning & Connections recommends engaging early with our team to assist with your submission and allow us to plan resources to support your 5.3.9 request.
