Commissioning display low frequency system

As an operator of a low-frequency system with a nominal voltage of 110 KV or more or a direct current system, you are obliged to notify the competent authority of this before commissioning or a significant change.

The competent authority shall examine the notification and record the installation in its plant register.

Process flow

Who should I contact?

In Lower Saxony, responsibility lies with the lower building supervisory authorities of the districts, cities or municipalities in which the plants are to be operated. In special cases, the State Office for Mining, Energy and Geology is also responsible.


The prerequisite is that

  • the installation is located on a plot of land in the area of a development plan or within a contiguous built-up district or on a plot of land developed with residential buildings in the outdoor area or crosses such land,
  • the plant or its substantial modification does not require a permit, planning approval or other official decision that takes into account the interests of immission control.

Which documents are required?

  • Display with the data relevant for the system
  • Site plan

What are the fees?

Payment in advance: No
Fees are payable in accordance with Annex 1 to § 1 paragraph 1 General Fee Schedule of the State of Lower Saxony (AllGO) in accordance with No. 44.15.

What deadlines do I have to pay attention to?

The notification shall be submitted to the competent authority at least two weeks before the installation is put into operation or before any significant change to the installation.
