    Do I need a smart meter to claim SEG payments?


    We recently had solar panels and a battery pack installed, complete with online monitoring, so will we also have to have a smart meter installed in order to claim Smart Export Guarantee payments or can the online monitoring portal be used instead?

    Hi Dave! Thanks for taking the time to post.

    For a lot of SEG tariffs, they do require a meter that can take half-hourly readings. While a smart meter is generally considered the best way to achieve this, it's not the be all and end all - there are specific "export meters" which can record this.

    This link here will provide more information on the SEG & give you a link to apply with the extra information you may need :)

    I hope this helps!

    Beth :)
