Instead of exporting energy you are not using, why not use it at night. Battery storage prices have come down lots and boost your savings from a solar PV system.

The great thing about this is, you will save extra energy for use in the evening, but you will still receive your 50% export payments. You will get your feed in tariff payments and your export payments. This system will save extra money in the evening by running your home off the battery units. As said above these batteries will have been charged in the day by electricity that would have otherwise flowed back into the grid for others to use.

Still get my export? Even though I have solar PV battery storage

You may find this strange, but your export payments are based on 50% of what your generation meter has produced. You do not have a separate export meter installed and do not have to do so unless the system size is over 30kW. Using your system this way with battery storage and claiming the feed in tariff with its export is perfectly fine. So instead of sending a percentage of your electricity, you generate back to the grid over the day, you can now store it in handy batteries to use when the sun has gone down.
