DER Compliance 'Stage 3 - Export Limits' now live

NTI-910X440 903 x 428 905 x 428

The latest stage of the DER Compliance Program, 'Stage 3 - Export Limits', has today been released to industry.

What will change from today?

All new small embedded generation (SEG) fixed export installations occurring on or after 31 May 2024 will undergo a 10-day remote monitoring period to confirm adherence to a standard 0kW, 1.5kW or 5kW export limit.

Sites detected in breach of export limits are flagged as non-compliant and contribute to overall compliance percentages in SmartSA.

Historic fixed export installations prior to 31 May 2024 are not included in scope of Export Limits compliance; however, if there is an existing non-compliance on site when a new application is raised, it will be flagged for attention with the new applicant.

This stage of compliance relates to fixed export sites only. Compliance for Flexible Exports sites was part of Stage 2 – Flexible Exports Commissioning.

The wider DER Compliance landscape

Stage 1 – Verify Install (Closeout), Stage 2 – Flexible Exports Commissioning and Stage 3 – Export Limits now run concurrently. All three elements of the DER Compliance Program are included compliance percentage calculations.
