How can I generate electricity from my home?

There are a number of ways to generate your own electricity depending on your location and situation. The most common method of generation is by installing solar panels, followed by small wind turbines and micro-hydro schemes, found more commonly in rural areas.

How do I get started?

We don't sell solar panels, wind, or hydro generation systems. We recommend you contact a specialist provider to discuss the best solution to suit your home’s energy needs. In many cases, these providers will assist you with the consenting process with your local network if you are thinking of generating power and exporting this into the network (a key requirement for all exported generation). They often also arrange for a qualified electrician to install your import/export meter.

If you don’t have a two-way meter, email or call us on 07 306 2700 (or 0800 668 236) to discuss your requirements. We can also assist you with your meter installation.
