Generator Connection Agreement published by Transgrid (a transmission service provider in New South Wales, Australia) on its website. The agreement sets out the terms on which Transgrid provides transmission services to generator customers (including renewable power generators) on its transmission network. The electricity transmission and distribution networks in Australia are owned and operated by private players, who provide services on their networks under negotiated private contracts. The Australian National Electricity Rules set out a framework to regulate how private network service providers can negotiate and contract with their customers to provide them with network services (including how they can charge tariffs for the network services they provide). Because these contracts are intended to be negotiated between private parties (albeit in a regulated environment), it may not be appropriate for adoption in economies where the transmission and distribution networks are state-owned.
