The Smart Export Guarantee (SEG) pays homeowners and businesses for renewable electricity they generate but don’t use. Along with the benefits of using the energy you generate and reducing your company carbon footprint if difficult to see why you wouldn't install solar!
The Smart Export Guarantee is a clean energy initiative set up by the government that rewards businesses for generating their own renewable electricity. The scheme allows customers who generate excess energy to send it to the national grid in exchange for a small payment. This scheme is an updated version of the Feed-in Tariff scheme which was canceled a while back.
Installing solar PV on commercial roofs has a myriad of economic benefits. It reduces carbon emissions, offsets the need to purchase peak time electricity from the grid, helps insulate companies from future electricity price fluctuations and puts unused rooftop space to good use.
The smart export guarantee (SEG), pays businesses for solar energy they 'export'. This is electricity you generate, but don't use yourself, that is then pumped back into the national energy grid. Of course, you'll also save on your electricity bills as you'll be generating energy yourself, rather than just using electricity from your supplier.
Installing Solar is a big step towards going 'green' as a home-owner. Solar energy does not depend on electricity grids and fossil fuels.
