What is the Smart Export Guarantee and how do I join it?

The Smart Export Guarantee or SEG can be a money maker!

To put it simple, if your solar panels produce more electricity than you can use.. sell it! Instead of letting the surplus energy go to waste, you can actually make money on it by selling it to the national grid. Under the SEG scheme - electricity suppliers are required to offer a fair price to buy each unit of electric that you sell to the grid. and it couldn't be easier!... with the added bonus of any earnings being tax free!
