SEG form question

Options
Hello, I finally received my G99 approval from DNO and looking to join British Gas SEG.
Filling out their form and there is one question I don't understand (google of no help)

'For Anaerobic Digestion (AD) OFgem Reporting Start Date'  -   "Date Required"

Anybody understand what that means?

I also require an export MPAN number, is that something automatically generated via the approval of G99 Application or do I need to apply for one?


Comparing the British Gas SEG vs Octopus SEG they don't ask for any of this information, why is it so difficult?

Thank you

    Unless you have have a Anaerobic Digestion unit  that willbe a Na.< a unit used to convert waste food for power>
    The mpan number should be on your smart meter.

    Thank you, had no idea what Anaerobic Digestion was.

    I have an import MPAN number but no export MPAN number, are both used the same?
    I just been on the UKPN website and requested for an export MPAN number, assume that is the correct way?

    Oh I see, it looks like Octopus energy applies to the DNO on your behalf to get an export MPAN, where as British Gas makes you do all the legwork and apply yourself.....  :/
