Zille said the provincial government recently launched a solar PV municipal tariff map for the province.
“The easy-to-use map shows the different solar PV tariffs applicable for installation of solar PV across 18 municipalities in the province for various uses. This includes residential, commercial, large-scale power use or agricultural. A big part of the game-changer is to encourage the increased uptake of rooftop solar PV.
"We have set the ambitious target of increasing the contribution of solar PV to the province’s electricity supply to 135MW by 2020,” she said adding that they aimed for a 10% reduction of demand from Eskom by 2020.
In 2015, the energy security game-changer aimed to drive energy efficiency and increasing the installed capacity of rooftop solar PV.
