The papers are full of the “good” news that Cape Town plans to let commercial, and residential users feed back to the grid, and potentially make money!
Thing is, none of the papers have actually done any due diligence and looked into whats actually on offer. The short form if you can’t be bothered reading, is that it’s really greenwashing.
There is no way that Residential users will be doing anything other than paying fixed costs, so any claims otherwise are pretty bogus.
Commercial users on the other hand can definitely make some bucks, but that will depend on their usage.
