Feed In Tariff - Are any Suppliers paying Deemed Export from 15th February on a Standard Meter

    I tried asking this Q on another Thread but it seemed to get lost.

    EI have stated that they don't pay 'Deemed Export' if you are on a Standard Analogue Meter and will only pay from the point a Smart Meter is installed.

    In my case I had a standard Meter from 15th February (start date ) up to 10th July when ESB Networks fitted a Smart Meter.

    EI state that they only pay FIT in this case from 10th July and there is no Deemed Export paid from 15th Feb to 9th July.

    Therefore if you are eligible for a Smart Meter but ESB Networks drag their heels on fitting it then you will not receive a FIT payment.

    Are any other suppliers paying FIT from the 15th February where you are eligable for a Smart Meter but had not had one offered or fitted until later?

    /subscribed Same question applies... If you are on D/N meter - not refused a Smart Meter but just not had it offered/installed yet where do we stand?

    Wonder could you take the deemed export payment and pull out of FIT when Smart Meter installation can no longer be put off....

    This is what I got from Electric Ireland

    As you may be aware the Microgen Support Scheme came into effect with the introduction of the Clean Export Guarantee (CEG) on the 15th Feb 2022. 

     Our records show that you have already submitted an NC6 form so there is no further action for you to take. 

     We are happy to confirm some of the important details about how and when you will be paid for your excess electricity.

    How will my payment be calculated?

    As you’re not currently eligible for a smart meter you’ll receive an estimated payment based on the size of your installation, this is calculated using a formula provided by the CRU (Commission for Regulation of Utilities). 

     At a later time you may receive a smart meter, at which point your payment will be calculated based on meter measurement. 


    When will my payment start?

    Your first payment will be made by end of 2022. If your microgen system was installed before February 15th 2022, your payment will be backdated to 15th February. If it was installed after February 15th 2022, your payment will be backdated to the time when your NC6 form was processed. 


    This first payment will be applied in the form of a credit on your bill. After your first payment you will receive a microgen credit on each bill, reflecting the estimated amount of electricity you exported in that period. 

     What rate will I be paid?

    Electric Ireland is pleased to offer a rate of 14c per kWh. We estimate that this payment will range between €50 - €300, depending on the size and type of your microgen system (a typical installation of 10 PV panels would be about €150 a year).

    we must assume that above framework applies to all energy providers
