Smart Export Guarantee

The Smart Export Guarantee (SEG) was introduced on the 1st January 2020. It is a Government support mechanism designed to ensure small-scale renewable energy generators are paid for the electricity they export to the national grid. 

You may be eligible to apply for the Smart Export Guarantee if you have one of the following renewable energy generating technologies installed via an accredited installer:

If you already receive a Feed In Tariff (FiT) on your installation, this is unaffected by the introduction of the SEG.


All energy companies with greater than 150,000 customers have to offer a SEG tariff. Smaller companies can choose to do so and some companies besides traditional energy companies have begun offering tariffs as well (eg Tesla). Installing a renewable generation technology and signing up to an SEG tariff will help you use more renewable electricity and can help you save money on it in the long term. 


Companies set their own SEG tariff prices, so you’ll need to shop around to make sure you get a price you’re happy with. Your individual bill savings and SEG earnings will depend on: 

  • How much electricity you export to the grid 

  • Your export tariff rates 

  • Time of export (if the SEG has a time-variable rate) 

  • How much of the electricity you use yourself 

  • The price you pay for electricity

  • How much time you spend at home
