*From 1 December 2022, SA Government’s new regulations will come into effect as part of the Smarter Homes Program, requiring all new exporting generation systems to be capable of remotely updating their export limits. These regulatory changes mean that all exporting systems installed after this date will be able to enrol in SA Power Networks’ Flexible Exports connection option as it becomes available.

Frequently Asked Questions

From 1 December 2022, SA Government’s new regulations will come into effect as part of the Smarter Homes Program, requiring all new exporting generation systems to be capable of remotely updating their export limits. These regulatory changes mean that all exporting systems installed after this date will be able to enrol in SA Power Networks’ Flexible Exports connection option as it becomes available.  

Any inverter manufacturer who wishes to get their inverters certified to Flexible Exports or Dynamic Exports requirements and listed as Flexible Exports compatible, please contact New Energy Services for more information. 

SA Power Networks does not provide assurance that the listed inverter manufacturers will provide capability to retroactively update their already installed equipment to become Flexible Exports compatible.  

Once the inverter manufacturer can meet the Dynamic Exports requirements, SA Power Networks will be able to assist with modification to the Small Embedded Generators (SEG) approval.
