Iím having a row with my energy supplier in Northern Ireland ......
Iím in a rural location 3 properties fed from an old transformer..... my gshp started to fail after 12 years and I had to replace it, just finished last weekend all good thus far, as a temporary measure the servicing engineer bypassed the soft start box to give me heat and water prior to the new gshp being installed this caused the neighbours lights to flicker and they complained to our supplier PowerNI .....

They did not know it was my installation causing the problem we are all on good terms......
PowerNI came out and called me initially at 7.20am asking if I could shut my 6kw turbine down .....to see if they could find the fault .....

Stupidly ..... I admitted to knowing the reason for the flickering.....mistake ..... Anyhow since then  I have 3 letters and numerous phone calls asking when I was going to fix the problem .....

The pump installation needed replacing but their attitude to me was appalling......the last letter I received today basically threatened me that they would cut the supply off.....

Any options ?

The problem re. Their infrastructure is sorted I think ......
But I want to find out what their obligations are re renewables and if there are EU or national regulations that I can refer them to .......

I am not off grid but I do feed back in via the turbine .... I donít use any carbon save the electricity I use ....

I was ďencouraged/ inducedĒ to install the gshp etc at the time by govt grants but I want to have a go at my electricity supplier who is basically saying if my installation inconveniences their other customers around me I have to pay to upgrade their incapable infrastructure.......

I know there are govt obligations and targets but are there supplier ones also ?.
Iím definitely going to have a go at them regardless.....
