  • Hydro
  • Anaerobic digestion
  • Micro-combined heat and power

SEG tariffs offered

Updated 6th August 2023

You’re better off by bundling with Utility Warehouse as you’ll get the best value SEG tariff. The rate they pay for what you export depends on the number of services you have with them.

The current UW SEG payment tariff that’s available to everyone:

  • Supplier: The Utility Warehouse (Electricity Plus Supply Ltd)
  • Tariff name: UW Smart Export Guarantee – Standard
  • Tariff type: Standard Variable
  • Unit rate: 2 pence per kWh
  • Effective from: 01 May 2022

Customers who take Energy plus two or more additional services* will automatically receive their highest rate:

  • Supplier: The Utility Warehouse (Electricity Plus Supply Ltd)
  • Tariff name: UW Smart Export Guarantee – Bundle
  • Tariff type: Standard Variable
  • Unit rate: 5.6 pence per kWh
  • Effective from: 01 May 2022
  • Eligibility: Energy plus two or more additional services are required

If at any point you cancel an additional service or make changes to your account which means you are no longer eligible for the Utility Warehouse Bundle tariff rate, they will switch you on to the Standard tariff. Likewise, if you add a qualifying service they will switch you onto the Bundle tariff. 

For example, if you start with Energy plus one additional service and add another service, they will arrange to switch you to their ‘UW Smart Export Guarantee – Bundle’ tariff. If you then choose to cancel one of those services, they will reduce you to the lower ‘UW Smart Export Guarantee – Standard’ tariff.

*Additional services – Broadband, Mobile and Insurance. Bill protector and Cashback Card are excluded. Boiler & home cover is also excluded for tenants.
