How do I connect solar to the grid?

You can connect your solar system in 3 simple steps:

  1. Apply to Synergy to get started

    Simply complete the Renewable Energy Systems application form. We’ll give you a reference number within 1 business day. You'll need to quote this number when applying to Western Power.

    Get started

  2. Apply to Western Power to connect to the grid

    Using your reference number, you or your solar installer will need to apply to have your solar system connected to the Western Power network.

    Once connection approval has been provided, Western Power will notify us and we’ll automatically arrange for your meter to be changed or reprogrammed.

    Systems under 5kW take around 5 or 6 business days to process. Systems between 5kW - 30kW usually take around 10 to 15 business days to process.

    Get connected

  3. Install your system

    Western Power will leave a note in your meter box when your meter has been changed or re-programmed. Once you get that, your solar supplier can install your solar system.

All done! It's time to start saving.
