I am an existing REBS customer and want to upgrade my system, how will this affect me?
Customers who undertake the following changes to their systems will be required to apply for DEBS:
- Increase the size of their renewable energy system up to the maximum permitted size (e.g. upgrade a 2kW solar PV system up to a maximum 5kW solar PV system); or
- Install a home battery storage system at their premises, including an electric vehicle that is set up to export energy to the grid (vehicle-to grid, or V2G);
If you are already in the process of finalising your application for buyback payments for your solar export, then you will have a week’s grace to finalise and submit it to Synergy. Provided we receive your eligible completed application on or before 7 September 2020, you will receive REBS.
