Government – Smart Export Guarantee (SEG)

The Smart Export Guarantee (SEG) is an obligation set by the government for licensed electricity suppliers to offer a tariff and make payment to small-scale low-carbon generators for electricity exported to the National Grid, providing certain criteria are met.

For more information about how SEG works see the OFGEM SEG Site

Here is the Electricity Supplier List that have entered the scheme so far:

Have Solar PV Panels on your roof? Check here to see how you qualify to join the scheme:

If your supplier is not on the list, email them and ask why not!
Even so, it doesn’t matter because there is no requirement for the SEG licensee to be the same company as your energy supplier. You can choose to use separate companies for your SEG export payments, electricity supply and your gas supply if you wish.

The scheme also applies to those of you who have:

  • Wind
  • Micro combined heat and power (CHP)
  • Hydro
  • Anaerobic digestion (AD)
