The Smart Export Guarantee enables small scale generators to receive payment for excess electricity that is generated and exported to the grid. In the British Energy Security Strategy the Government committed to simplify planning processes and facilitate low-cost finance to drive rooftop solar deployment. The Strategy also set out that the Government is looking at ensuring that local supportive communities who wish to host new onshore wind infrastructure can receive benefits in return, for example through lower energy bills.
