About Smart Export Guarantee Tariffs

SEG tariffs are designed to pay customers for any electricity they export to the grid using a system that meets SEG requirements. You can find out more about which technologies are eligible here Smart Export Guarantee (SEG) – Generators | Ofgem.

We are a voluntary SEG provider. With Rebel, you can earn from 6p/kWh for every unit you export. Our first SEG Tariff Snail – fixed for one year has a rate of 10p/kWh for every unit you export. We will publish rates that we have available on this help page or you can contact us on the email below to find out more.

How Does the Rebel SEG Tariff Work

If you have a smart meter capable of sending readings automatically, we take these readings every quarter and work out how much energy you have exported. From this we work out the payment due to you credit to your Rebel Energy account and can be paid to you by BACs.

Do I need to use you to provide the import tariff?

No, you can remain with a different provider for the electricity you take from the Grid.

You will need to have a smart meter capable of taking half hourly readings – we will happily install one for you if you don’t already have one.
