Solar panels

Generating your own energy?

If you are generating energy via alternative sources - for example solar panels, wind, batteries, gas, diesel and biomass (vegetation) - we call this Distributed Generation (DG) and it allows you to connect to, and input any surplus power into the WEL network.
