You are not allowed to connect a microgenerator unless ESB Networks have received an application and not reverted with an objection within 20 business days, as in some cases there may be a safety issue or work may be required by ESB Networks before connection.
Accordingly after you inform ESB Networks of proposed connection, ESB Networks will assess your application, and if ESB Networks do not then revert to you within 20 Business days with an issue, you can then proceed to connect your microgenerator.
For payment - only customers who submit a valid NC6 Notification form to ESB Networks are eligible for the interim Clean Export Guarantee.
For safety - microgenerators have the potential to give an electric shock or create a dangerous hazard for you or your neighbours. For your own safety, it is important that the unit fully complies with safety standards.
Note: If your generator causes damage to the electricity network or to the general public you may be liable.
