This project, announced in the 2018/19 Budget Speech, aims to promote renewable energy by allowing residential customers (who consume up to 200 kWh per month, and are in tariff categories 110, 120 and 140) to produce their own electricity from renewable energy sources.
The new SSDG project will be implemented in three phases, spread over a period of 3 years. The first phase involves the installation of 250 solar panels for free on the roof of residential customers. Thereafter, 750 installations will be carried out during the second year and, finally, there will be 1,500 installations during the last year.
Thus, all in all, 2 500 solar photovoltaic kits (with a capacity of 2 kWp each) will be integrated into the electricity grid of the CEB.
