Buy Back Domestic

Designed for Domestic customers with embedded generators (EmGs) approved by Jersey Electricity in accordance with Engineering Recommendations G83/2 or G59/3, connected in parallel to JE's network and which have the capacity to sell excess units back to JE.

Typical examples of embedded generators that may qualify for our Buy Back Tariff include:

  • Wind turbine
  • Photovoltaic (solar panels)
  • Combined heat and power systems (CHP)

Embedded generators connected in parallel to our network must comply with either Engineering Recommendations G83/2 or G59/3 depending on the rating of the generator. For further advice contact us on 505460.

Buy Rate 6.24p a unit

For all units exported to the Jersey Electricity network during any time of the day or night from 1 January 2017 up to a facility size of 50kWp 3 Phase / 20kWp Single Phase.

Installations above 50kWp will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis.

Typical kW peak refers to the maximum rating of the EmG (wind turbine / photovoltaic /combined heat and power systems).

Standby Charge

We currently have no plans to implement the Standby Charge for Domestic customers who have embedded generation, such as Solar PV,  but who require backup services and power from the grid.Though we will keep the situation under review. 

Please note that for the purpose of Standby Charge, Jersey Electricity does not consider home storage batteries to be embedded generators, however they must be installed in compliance with the relevant Engineering Recommendations.
