Energy generation

I think that rules/information should be created make it easy for people to generate their own electricity and sell it back to the national grid. I know people can do this a little already, but making it more easy, facilitated and comprehensive could birth a whole new genre of entrepreneurship

Instead of the merely standard wind turbines, it could be made easy for small investors to take over old water mills, windmills, have local projects where fast flowing rivers or spillways could have floatable turbines run across parts that have no boats. 

We have the skills in this country to create the technology in a mass produced way to create all these power applications, and a whole new industry could be created in creating  and supplying the hardware for medium scale power generation: off the shelf projects that people could have installed could on the smallest scale could earn discounts on your energy bills. 

But medium scale endeavors like water mills could be run as a small business with a remarkably steady income. Farmers who have lots of land with good wind coverage could earn a second income with turbines, and need less subsidy. It would save the government a lot of money if it became widespread, as the scale and diversity of the power generation would be limited only by the publics imagination, and the need for building new central power stations may be reduced. If green generation of power was diverse then it would be more consistent in differing weather.

It could also mean that in the event of weather disasters or attacks power outages would be less common as power would be generated on a more local and distributed fashion.

Why is this idea important?
