Cape Town homes begin electricity feed-in pilot

The City of Cape Town will soon start a unique pilot project which will allow three domestic households to feed their excess electricity, created from renewable energy sources, back into the city’s grid.

The project will run on a net metering basis without any actual financial transaction taking place. Instead, the households will receive one free unit of electricity for each unit fed into the grid.

A project of this nature has never been attempted before in South Africa.
