When can I expect to receive a payment?

You must accept Bord Gáis Energy’s Microgen Export Plan terms and conditions in order to receive an export payment.

We’ll calculate your payment using your metered export data, or a deemed export quantity provided by ESB Networks. 

To offer our customers the most competitive rate possible, we’ll make a payment to customers every six months. Once you’ve exported for 6 months, payment will be made as a credit on your electricity bill. We started making our first payments from March 2023.

If you leave Bord Gáis Energy before your payment is due, you'll receive your export payment up to when you leave. This will be paid as a credit on your final electricity bill.
