I have solar panels installed, how will this affect my So Energy account?
We do not support Feed-in Tariff (FiT) payments. However, this does not stop you from transferring your energy supply to us, having separate arrangements with two different energy suppliers, one for your own consumption and another for your generation.
The Smart Export Guarantee (SEG) has replaced the Feed-in Tariff and is an obligation for electricity suppliers with over 150,000 customers to pay eligible customers for the electricity they export to the grid from their own renewable generators. If you have a small-scale, low-carbon-emitting generator and you're exporting some or all of its generation to the National Grid through a smart meter, as a Smart Export Guarantee (SEG) Licensee, So Energy may be able to pay you for this energy.
I am currently on the Feed-in-tariff, should I switch to your export tariff?
Whilst you can switch to our export tariff, please check your Feed-in Tariff rates first, as you may earn more by continuing to receive your Feed-in Tariff payments. Please remember that Feed-in Tariff export rates are guaranteed for 20 years from the date your micro-generation system was commissioned and rises with inflation. You may opt in or out of claiming FIT export payments once every 12 months.
If you would like more information about our Smart Export Tariff, please visit our FAQ page here which also contains our form to register your interest.
