Author Topic: Suggestions for DNO/Supply Contract?  (Read 2935 times)
« on: December 09, 2008, 05:07:35 PM »

We're in the process of cutting through the red tape in order to get the Navitron 20kW wind turbine grid-connected. The DNO isn't being particularly helpful, having sent a form clearly aimed at windfarms or large diesel generators, and our electricity supplier has offered to buy back our excess electricity at the princely sum of 4.5p/kWh - and they keep the ROC money - in other words, they'll take it off our hands for free!

Has anyone had experience of commercial microgeneration? Which are the best companies to deal with and what should be expect to be paid?

Pity it isn't possible to keep it in house locally and undercut the supply price.

One of the problems is that commercial connections don't see the same rates as domestic. See my new thread for the response I've had from EDF. Incredulous.

hi, can I ask what type of inverter you're looking at for the 20kw connection to the grid ?

do you plan to parallel some smaller inverters, or use one big one ?

Planning to parallel a number of 6kW units. We're going to use the Aurora, which we'll be retailing shortly.

Incidentally, we spoke to Good Energy, and they confirmed that it's possible to sell our electricity to a different company from the one that supplies us. We'll more than likely be setting up a contract with them in due course.
