How do I create & sell energy to Contact?


  1. Your first step would be to contact an installer / supplier to find out what involved.
    They will guide you through the process and install the equipment. They will also assist you in attaining a certificate of generation to show the equipment is ready for use. 
    Contact doesn’t sell or install solar panels or any generation equipment.
  2. You will need to apply to your Network company for a connection contract.
    The connection contract will permit you to connect new generation equipment, and allows you to send any surplus energy into the national grid.
    You can find your network company on this page.
  3. Take a look at Contact's distributed generation / alternate energy terms and conditions.
  4. If you’re not already a contact customer, sign up.
  5. You will need an import export meter installed at your property, we can set this up for you once you have signed up.
  6. Additionally, you will need to follow the alternate energy application steps
  7. Once the meter and generation equipment has been installed and certified, you will be able to sell energy to Contact. 

For more information have a look at our Alternate energy page.
