What size are the overhead wires and how much electricity can I export?

    In general terms, the amount of electricity that can be exported is determined by the electricity infrastructure in your area, the distance the generating site is from the NIE Networks' primary substation and the amount of generation already committed to the circuit. 

    There are three types of application:

    • G83/1 Stage 1 - typically single installations at domestic / business premises
    • G83/1 Stage 2 - multiple installations at domestic / business premises
    • G59 - large installations
