About the 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.

The SEG Scheme came into force on the 1st January 2020.

The rates vary depending on your supplier however you don’t have to register your SEG Payment with your current Energy Provider so you can shop around for the best rate.

ECH provide you with all the documentation you need to be able to register for the scheme in your Handover Pack once the installation is completed.

If you have any trouble filling out the SEG Form for your Energy Provider, just give us a call and we will help you complete.
