Smart Export Guarantee Tariffs

The Smart Export Guarantee (SEG), which was introduced in January 2020, offers consumers a way to receive payments for any excess energy they generate and feed back to the Grid.

Available SEG Tariffs

There are several tariffs on offer, many of which have specific eligibility requirements, and so not all will be suitable for you. To help you choose we have listed below the rates currently available but would advise that you read carefully, the terms and conditions of any considered tariffs before signing up.

Explanation of the columns included within the table:

Includes battery storage – some Suppliers will only pay for energy exported directly from your solar panels and not from your battery. Where a tariff does not include battery storage you will need to provide evidence that your system will only export energy from your solar panels.

Must be a supply customer – some tariffs are only available to customers who receive their import electricity from the Supplier. To benefit from an exclusive ‘supply customer only’  rate you may need to switch Supplier.

Accepts Flexi-Orb certificates – Flexi-Orb’s Installation Scheme is currently undergoing assessment with UKAS, and until it receives UKAS Recognition, consumers with a Flexi-Orb certificate can only apply for a tariff where the Supplier accepts Flexi-Orb certificates. 

Note: The rates shown are correct as at 15th August 2023, however, after several years of stable export tariff prices, tariffs are now changing regularly and quickly, so you should check that the tariff is available.
