If you use solar panels, you may be able to earn money by selling any excess electricity you don’t use to your energy provider.
Until 31 March 2019, the government operated a feed-in tariff (FIT) programme, in which households that generated electricity with solar panels would get paid for every kilowatt they produced. However, this tariff no longer exists.
It’s been replaced by the Smart Export Guarantee (SEG). The main difference is that the Smart Export Guarantee won’t pay you for the electricity you produce, but only the surplus – the electricity that you don’t use yourself, and which is sent into the National Grid.
This means that payments from SEG are likely to be lower than they were through the old system. However, energy companies can now offer different prices, so you may be able to find a good deal.
To take advantage of SEG, you’ll need to have a smart energy meter so your provider knows how much electricity you’re exporting. If you don’t have one, many providers will install them for free.
