PV MUNICIPAL MAP
Scale Embedded Generation SSEG installations are increasing across the South African distribution network areas. As the majority of energy generated through SSEG in South Africa is from solar photovoltaic (PV) systems, SAPVIA has created the PV Municipal Map to inform potential installers of the municipalities readiness for SSEG installations on their distribution networks.
The interactive map will provide guidance detailing the regulations, application process for customers to connect their systems as well as updates on which municipalities have NERSA-approved SSEG tariffs, allowing them to credit customers for excess electricity exported onto their distribution network.
