Answered By: 
The Mayor

The Licence Lite operation will offer local generation a better price for their export electricity. It is a pilot scheme and this year aims to be its first year of operation. However, I am still finalising details of Licence Lite.

Initially I intend to sell the electricity to Transport for London and we could meet just over 2 per cent of TfL's low voltage electricity demand for every one megawatt generation capacity.

My objective is to supply up to 10 megawatts of electricity by the end of the first year and this would meet approximately 23 per cent of TfL's requirement for low voltage electricity.
