The installation of appropriate equipment to produce electricity is, to date, Rs 200,000 on average. Prompting some to backtrack. A senior official of the CEB told Le Matinal in the future, the cost of facilities fall. It even provides a fall in the price of solar panels by 50%.
According to the CEB, there are currently three types of customers who use solar panels to generate electricity. The first category is for individuals who are at number 128. Production capacity of 1 megawatt. The second category relates to public institutions, educational institutions and religious societies. Their production capacity is 58 kWh. In this category, there are only three to be connected to the Central Electricity Board net. The third category is the producers of Rodrigues. Two individuals have already started making facilities to connect to the CEB network. In the direction of CEB, the first plan launched by the parastatal body has been so successful that the CEB had to increase the production capacity of small producers. They can now put on the network CEB maximum capacity of 4.7 megawatts of electricity instead of 2 megawatts. The CEB will launch a second plane soon.
According to the criteria, an individual can sell two-thirds of its electricity production CEB. This then reduces the electricity bill by at least 15%. The average selling price is Rs 20 per kWh.
The CEB found that many people who generate electricity for their own needs on a small or medium scale, using hydropower technologies, solar, wind, or other, are connected to the CEB grid without going through the procedures specifically put in place for this type of producer.
The Central Electricity Board wishes to inform the public that such practices are illegal and involve major risks for the technicians working on the electrical network of CEB as well as equipment that is connected. Any illegal connection is liable to prosecution under the Electricity Act. Management of CEB asks all those concerned to regularize their situation by getting in contact with the headquarters of the CEB in Curepipe.
