About the Smart Export Guarantee (SEG)

The SEG launched on 1 January 2020 and is a government-backed initiative. The SEG requires some electricity suppliers (SEG Licensees) to pay small-scale generators (SEG Generators) for low-carbon electricity which they export back into the National Grid, providing certain criteria are met. With an installation of solar PV at your home, you become an SEG generator.

You can apply for an SEG tariff with any SEG Licensee – it does not have to be the same company as your current energy supplier.

To record how much energy you have exported to the National Grid, you will need to request a smart meter from your supplier, if you do not already have one, after your installation.

For PV, you will also be required to demonstrate that your installation is suitably certified. SOLARhome is an MCS Certified installer meaning your installation will automatically be eligible for the SEG.
