Smart Export Guarantee (SEG)

Pozitive Energy have now become a voluntary SEG licensee and are excited to be able to offer customers with a qualifying export meter a way to earn money through selling their excess electricity.

What is SEG?

The government recognised the need for small scale generators to be paid for the energy they export. The Smart Export Guarantee (SEG) was created to replace the Feed in Tariff which closed to new applicants in April 2019. The SEG is an obligation on larger suppliers allowing customers to get paid for the excess renewably generated electricity they send back to the grid. Pozitive Energy have now voluntarily joined this scheme.

What technology qualifies to be part of the SEG?

  • Up to 5MW
  • Solar PV Panels
  • Onshore Wind Turbine
  • Anaerobic Digestion
  • Hydro Power
  • Up to 50KW
  • Micro Combined Heat and Power (CHP)

What technology doesn’t qualify to be part of the SEG?

  • Battery stored electricity
