This guideline aims to help people undertaking exempt sale and supply activities register with us and understand the information we collect as part of the licensing exemptions registration process.
Registration Guideline for Exempt Persons
In 2017, the Victorian Government introduced new rules for exempt persons that requires them to register with us for an electricity licensing exemption. Many exempt sellers and suppliers that do not have an electricity licence, and supply or sell electricity to other people, must register with us.
You may need to register with us if you:
- buy electricity from a licensed retailer and then sell it to other people
- supply electricity between the electricity meter and individual customers.
Under the new rules, solar power purchase agreement providers and some community energy projects also need to register with us.
Current version of the guideline
We are reviewing the guideline
We are consulting on draft administrative amendments to the Registration Guideline for Exempt Persons, and are seeking stakeholder feedback by 5 pm Friday, 11 October 2019.
