Electricity Buy Back – HomeGen

HomeGen is for customers who generate their own electricity and wish to sell the electricity they don't use back to the grid. It’s an add on to your pricing plan. We pay you 8 cents per kWh of energy exported to the grid with the total for your billing period showing as a separate credit line on your bill.

It’s available to Genesis electricity customers who have approved generation equipment (such as solar, wind or micro-hydro) installed, which produces less than 50 kW output.

To get set up for HomeGen you need your generation equipment and an import/export meter, also known as a two- way meter. This meter  will replace your existing meter(s). There could be additional charges to set you up, including costs from your network company to connect your generation equipment to the grid.

To order your import/export meter and get paid for your excess solar electricity you produce, complete the HomeGen application form here.

If you need help with this process, please get in touch [email protected]nesisenergy.co.nz
