HomeGen

Sell your electricity back with HomeGen.


HomeGen is for Genesis customers who wish to sell the electricity they generate and don't use back to the grid (aka electricity buyback). You’ll get 12 cents per kWh exported to the grid which appears as a separate credit line on your normal bill for that bill period.

It’s available to Genesis electricity customers with approved generation equipment (such as solar, wind or micro-hydro) installed and has less than a 50 kW output.

To get set up for HomeGen, you need your generation equipment and an import/export meter (aka a two-way meter). This meter costs $127 including installation and replaces your existing meter(s). There may be other charges 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 generate, simply enter a few details on our HomeGen application form. Then send the completed form to [email protected].

HomeGen Terms and Conditions apply.
