We are committed to protecting the environment and we recognise the role that renewable energy generation can have in helping individuals and organisations to combat climate change and prepare for a low carbon future. 

We are also committed to providing a safe and reliable electricity supply to you and your neighbours, and therefore need to ensure that any new energy generation on the network will not affect our ability to fulfil our obligations.

Please contact us if you are considering installing any type of generator, for example wind turbines, solar (photo-voltaic) panels, hydro generators, gas powered generators or diesel generators.  If you are completing an application, please provide us with as much information as possible such as the proposed location and the technical specifications for the generators so that we can meet your requirements as soon as possible.

If you’re installing microgeneration or small-scale generation, please read our guide, which also includes information on the Feed in Tariffs scheme.
