The Smart Export Guarantee (SEG) makes sure that small-scale low-carbon generators receive payment for any electricity they export to the grid. It requires licensed electricity suppliers to offer export tariffs to anaerobic digestion (AD), hydro, onshore wind, and solar photovoltaic (PV) generators with a total installed capacity up to 5MW, and micro-combined heat and power (micro-CHP) up to 50kW.

This document provides guidance on what Licensed Electricity Suppliers are required to do in order to comply with the SEG legislation.
