Grid connection permit process

Abbreviated form of legal source

S.L. 545.13

Description of the process

After REWS has evaluated the Authorisation applications or the feed-in tariff application and has issued an authorisation to construct the installation, the client then submits information about the system to the DSO (Enemalta). Enemalta will then conduct a grid connection study. Cost for the grid connection study depends on the size of the installations (RES Simplify). Systems larger than 16 Amps per phase, require a ‘No objection’ document from Enemalta.
After REWS has issued a ‘Regulatory clearance’ with applicable FiT (Stage 2 of the energy generation licence procedure), the PV developer applies for a PV meter and actual connection to the grid.
