Councils to sell energy to the National Grid

From 18 August 2010 UK councils will now be able to sell renewable energy to the National Grid as the government has lifted its ban.

This will enable local authorities to benefit from the feed-in tariff, which could generate an estimated £100 million (€122 million) a year.

Commenting on the change in law Energy Secretary Chris Huhne said: ‘This is a vital step to making community renewable projects commercially viable, to bring in long-term income to benefit local areas and to secure local acceptance for low carbon energy projects.’
