Smart Export Guarantee

League Table.

The Smart Export Guarantee is the new way to get paid for your power. If you have a solar PV system, and generate more power than you need, the surplus will be put onto the grid. Under the Smart Export Guarantee, electricity suppliers offer payment for each unit of power you export to the grid. 

Our league table reveals which suppliers are offering the best rates. Note that the best rate may not always mean the best energy package. Solar Energy UK recommends shopping around for the best deal.
