Chancellor Jeremy Hunt is set to announce the scheme in this week’s Autumn Statement, according to sources.
But a £1,000 energy sweetener paid annually for 10 years would only help wealthy rural residents, fuel poverty campaigners warn.
Jonathan Bean, of Fuel Poverty Action, said slashing bills in areas with anti-energy project campaigns was an “ill-conceived government policy, creating a huge postcode lottery” when it came to gas and electricity bills.
“This would mean unaffordable pricing remains for most whilst a lucky few pay half,” he added.
“It’s pretty crazy that some wealthy people in huge homes in the countryside could get a big discount when we’re seeing some people forced to turn off their heating or forced to go to food banks.”
Mr Hunt wants to drastically reduce the time to approve and build pylons, overhead cables and other transmission infrastructure, official sources say.
His aim is to halve the time it takes to deliver new electricity networks from 14 to seven years bringing forward £90bn of global investment over the next 10 years.
Wind farms and solar farms face lengthy delays in connecting to power networks because of Britain’s ailing grid infrastructure.
Former environment secretary Therese Coffey is among the senior Tories to have lobbied against a new high-voltage transmission line running from Norwich to Tilbury in Essex.
The Government’s energy networks commissioner Nick Winsor has recommended that residents should get “generous” compensation if they agree to new power lines near their homes.
The reforms are expected to include a new premium planning service across England to guarantee faster pre-application services for major projects in exchange for a fee and refunds where this is not met.
Mr Hunt could also confirm that nationally significant low-carbon energy infrastructure will be designated as a critical national priority and for the planning system to prioritise the rollout of Electric Vehicle charge points.
A Treasury spokesperson said: “Expanding the grid will unlock global investment for Britain and bring improvements for people across the country, with energy security that will keep energy costs down.
“By speeding up the planning system – including the rollout of Electric Vehicle charge points – we will be tackling one of the most common issues raised by businesses who are keen to invest in the UK.”
