    That's not unusual, if the DNO turned around and said you could only have 3.68kW export then you might decide you want a different system or might not go ahead.

    Now you have the first stage of approval your installers can install your system, then let the DNO know who will think about things for a few weeks before sending back the approval form that you need to get SEG.
    Thanks for that, I was naively thinking getting DNO approval meant I could export any surplus, not that there was another stage to go, learning lots🙂
    The final bit is supposed to allow the DNO to inspect the installation and making sure it's all safe and as promised. In practice they almost never do that.

    I'm sure there is additional stuff they do, but it's opaque to us end users.

    You will be able to export your surplus, and get paid for it. Just not until all the paperwork is signed off. Mine took 5 weeks after the installation for that final certificate to be emailed to me. Until then, and until you get SEG registered any excess is supplied for free.

    I never receieved a G98 confirmation but I got an MPAN so I assume DNO must have been informed else the MPAN wouldn't have been generated?

  • Shouldn't the EIC be on the list too, to certify the electrical installation? Might be useful when you sell your house if the buyer has an annoying solicitor. It was bit of a battle to get mine but it finally arrived this week. Bears no relationship to the actual installation of course, but they've typed some convincing looking numbers in and provided a pointless but apparently vital bit of paper.

  • Adds to the list, thanks 🙂

    Who did you contact? The consumer arm (Scottish Power) or the DNO side (SP Energy Networks)? It’s only the latter that could issue a G98.
