First steps towards private electricity sales in Swaziland

On the 8 of June the Times of Swaziland reported that locals will be able to sell power to SEC.
During an event in commemoration of World Environment Day at the Royal Swazi Sun Convention Centre, Lindiwe Ntshangase, Senior Energy Officer at the Ministry of Natural Resources and Energy (MNRE), was reported to have said: ‘SEC is no longer a monopoly so individuals can produce their own electricity and sell it to the grid.

She gave an example of generating solar energy for use in a private household or business being able to sell excess electricity to SEC.

According to Peterson Dlamini from the MNRE, they are still working on the Feed-in Tariff Framework which will stipulate how the electricity will be sold and managed.
