Stage 3a - Pre-application

This stage is optional, as it is not a requirement of the National Electricity Rules (NER). You have the choice of engaging AEMO to provide you with information and analysis prior to submitting a Connection Application. 

The purpose of the Pre-application stage is for AEMO to provide you with greater certainty about the proposed connection earlier in the overall connection process. As this is optional, you may choose to bypass it and move directly to the Connection Application stage. 

In the Pre-application stage, AEMO can provide more detailed information on:

  • Project program
  • Locational network information 
  • Infrastructure and contracts
  • System model and performance standards
  • Preliminary model tuning.

To review and/or request Pre-application services submit a Connection Pre-application Form and any supporting information to AEMO.
