There are a number of ways to generate your own electricity depending upon 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?
Nova Energy doesn'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 a qualified electrician to install a special two-way import/export meter. If you don’t have a two-way meter in place at the moment please call us on 0800 668 236 to discuss your requirements. We can also assist you with two-way meter installations.
