Thought of the Week | NERSA withdraws private generator rules

NERSA withdraws private generator rules The National Energy Regulator yesterday withdrew the draft rules, published in April this year, that sought to introduce licencing of every form of home electricity generation, including solar photo-voltaic (PV) panels and backup generators.

The Department of Energy will amend the suggested rules and gazette a revised notice. This is in response to many private individuals and businesses that questioned the need and purpose for such registration. Critics suggested that the department should clarify to what extent the public and commercially interested entities should be empowered to introduce self-sufficiency initiatives, using free natural resources, to meet their daily electricity requirements.

We will keep you updated and provide details of the new suggested rules, once gazetted.
