If people fail to register by May 31, they will pay a R6,400 service fee for the removal of unauthorized small-scale embedded generation.
CAPE TOWN – The City of Cape Town has extended its registration date to solar photovoltaic systems to May.
The initial closing date was 28 February.
The city says that the main reason for that is the need for safety and control of quality of supply management.
The municipality says it does not charge for the solar PV systems.
However, if people fail to register by May 31, they will pay a R6,400 service fee for the removal of unauthorized small-scale embedded generation.
The city's Phindile Maxiti said: "If we do not do this registration, it will be very dangerous for our contractors because they will not know if the system is connected to the grid. We will make sure that our people are safe because now and then the contractors of the City of Cape Town have to go out and fix electricity. "
