Selling electricity | Guide for developers An introduction to generating and selling electricity at residential developments without an Ofgem licence

Switch2 Energy and law firm Penningtons Manches Cooper have worked together to develop a fact sheet to help heat network operators understand the practical and legal aspects of supplying electricity to residents.

The supply of electricity to a premises generally requires a licence from Ofgem. The fact sheet will cover where exemptions can apply and can offer landlords the opportunity to sell electricity to residents connected to a site’s privately operated electricity network.
