Owners of properties with solar power systems, and which properties are situated in the jurisdiction of the City of Cape Town Municipality, must register their installation with the City by 31 May. The initial deadline was set for the end of February 2019, but the City extended the grace period to Thursday this week.
In this Youtube video, the City explains why such regulation is necessary and also which exceptions apply, such as in the case of solar powered water geysers.
According to the City’s website, applicants can either register a grid-tied system or an off-grid SSEG.
