Microgeneration - Get paid for making Electricity
Have you Solar Panels on your roof?
Or a mini wind turbine in your garden?
Talk to us about Pinergy MicroGen
If you have Solar Panels on your roof or a wind turbine in your garden, then you should talk to us about microgeneration.
MicroGen customers who sign up for the plan are rewarded with the Pinergy feed-in tariff of 25c (ex VAT) payment per kWh exported that they sell back to us during 2023.
This is clean renewable electricity you are probably not using today that you can feed back to the electricity grid for others to use, while also earning residual income.
Payments are generally made every month and will appear on your App or Bill as a credit to your account.
Customers who do not have an ESB Networks Smart Meter will be paid by a “Deemed Export Quantity” which is an estimation.
This estimation is based on an ESB Networks formula, of exported electricity in kWh: it will be used as a proxy for metered export data,
The formula to calculate Deemed export quantity = MEC x Capacity Factor x Export Factor x Provision Interval.
Example of a deemed calculation:
Sample calculation for Deemed Export Quantity
Example: Commercial customer with an MEC of 50 and where the “Provision Interval” is 12 months (= 8760 hours)
