The CEB Smart City RE Scheme is an initiative which will enable implementing an important feature of the Smart City Scheme promoted by Government. 

The Smart City Guidelines, issued by the Economic Development Board, provides that “… a smart city project should be able to generate its own energy requirements through eco-friendly mechanisms such as solar plant…” 

Under this new RE Scheme, CEB will integrate into the grid Small-Scale Distributed Generation (SSDG) and Medium-Scale Distributed Generation (MSDG) solar photovoltaic (PV) projects set up by Smart Cities, holding either a Certificate or a Letter of Intent for Smart City issued by the Economic Development Board (EDB). 

The aim of this Scheme is to interconnect a total of 15 MW MSDG RE projects from Smart Cities. 5 MW out of the 15 MW will be kept as a buffer to cater for contingencies. Thereafter, depending on the situation, the 5 MW may be reallocated to the intended or new projects. 

Note :-

  • The submission of EOI FORM for the expression of interest (EOI) exercise is now closed.
  •  Pursuant to the Measure 192 of the Budget Speech 2022-2023, the Tariff (also known as the Feed-In Tariff) for energy exported, applicable to CEB’s Renewable Energy (RE) Schemes (MSDG - Smart City/Public Sector Entities Schemes), has been revised to MUR 4.20 per kWh. The revised Tariff will be applicable only to projects with a capacity of up to two megawatts (2 MW) that have not yet been commissioned. More details are provided in the Communiqué of 08 December 2022.
