On 8 January, Government published a consultation on a Smart Export Guarantee (SEG), which would ensure that small-scale low carbon generators do not export their electricity to the grid for free including, solar PV. The SEG consultation closed on the 5 March 2019. We are currently considering the responses submitted and will respond in due course.
