The State Grid Corp of China will grant easier access to the grid for distributed energy, a move that will allow individuals to sell excess power generated from solar modules installed at home.

China's biggest grid operator will boost construction of infrastructure, streamline the process required for grid connection and improve services to help all distributed power generation connect to the transmission grid, the State Grid said yesterday.

Distribution generation, or on-site generation, produces electricity from many small energy sources, particularly renewable sources such as wind and solar. Developing the sector could help China diversify its energy mix from a heavy reliance on fossil fuels.

But domestic demand for solar panels - China is the world's biggest maker - has been hurt by economic and technical issues, such as power quality and voltage stability.

In October, the State Grid unveiled measures to facilitate the connection of solar power plants to the grid as long as they meet certain standards, potentially boosting the utilization of many small-scale distributed projects.

The new policy covers all types of power sources, according to Xinhua news agency, ranging from solar, natural gas, biomass to wind and geothermal energy with a single project capacity of less than 6,000 kilowatts.
