Renewable Generation

Greener is Cleaner

As Northern Ireland’s fastest growing energy company, ClickEnergy is dedicated to getting more of our electricity from renewables. And that means buying more energy from generation sources like wind, solar, anaerobic digestion, biomass and hydro.  

Do you generate renewable electricity?

Because any electricity that is generated cannot be easily stored, it is exported back to the grid. Click Energy will pay you for the amount you export through a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA).

Did you know?

Like every Northern Ireland electricity provider, we buy most of our energy from the Single Electricity Market, so we can’t guarantee what ends up in your home will be totally green. But by buying more and more directly from renewable sources, we’re helping to make a difference – while of course still offering you best value!

How to sell your electricity

Power Purchase Agreements 

Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) allow you to sell whatever electricity you generate from renewable generation. At ClickEnergy we offer various payment options on your PPA while our partner Action Renewables offers a unique ROC & Energy Trading service.

So why are we different? 

  • We will tailor the tariff to suit your generation type, ensuring you get the best financial return for your export.
  • We provide you with an online account that gives you total transparency on billing, a one-stop shop for accessing your half-hourly data and the ability to view import, export and energy prices in graphical trend format.
  • We will provide you direct access to a dedicated Account Manager who can assist you with any queries or concerns.

So, whether you're an owner of a wind turbine, a farmer who generates electricity through anaerobic digestion or a developer planning renewable projects on a commercial scale then ClickEnergy has a solution for you.

 

We found Click Energy the best company to handle our portfolio for many reasons, primarily their customer based service, professionalism, price and web-based portal which is easy to use and is very transparent to the end user, Click Energy offer a personal service second to none.

FAQs on Generation

How do I get paid for my exported energy?

Your Power Purchase Agreement will specify your tariff type (fixed or variable), your tariff rate, contract period, your details and our standard terms and conditions. All payments are paid by direct debit.

How do I switch to ClickEnergy?

Very simple, all you need to do is agree terms with us and confirm your connection or contract start date. After that we will take care of everything else.

How often do I get paid?

Payment on renewable generation over 50kw is received monthly into your account.

What are Renewable Energy Certificates and how do I get accredited?

Renewable certificates, namely NIROCs and LECs are typical components of most, if not all PPAs. The Northern Ireland Renewable Obligation Certificates (NIROCs) scheme closed to new generating capacity on 31 March 2017. Applications pending accreditation prior to this date are valid until June 2017. You can contact our partner Action Renewables for further information around anything ROC-related.

What do I need to do to sign up?

The first thing to do is contact our generation team on 0800 1 070732. We need to know what sort of renewable generation you have, its maximum output and whether you have a new connection or want to switch to us for a better deal.

What you sell to ClickEnergy?
