Do not proceed if you have been notified by ESB Networks (within the specified time-frame) that you cannot proceed with installation of the micro-generator.
It is your responsibility to ensure that the Micro-Generator is installed by a registered electrical contractor to ETCI standards.
The generator (inverter) must comply with EN50438 with Irish settings. We will request a paper copy of the compliance cert and your application will not proceed until compliance is verified.
In order to export surplus electricity for payment, you will need an Import/Export meter. We will send you a quotation for installing an Import/Export meter. On completion of the wiring, your Electrical Contractor will submit a validated wiring cert which will be sent to ESB Networks electronically.
If you do not require an Import/Export meter, please state this on your Application Form.
Installation can start when all of the above conditions have been met.
