Small-Scale Embedded Generation (SSEG) Feed-In Tariffs

The Western Cape Government (WCG) is focused on ensuring a supportive regulatory environment for SSEG across municipalities. This will enable solar PV systems to be grid-tied and feed in any excess electricity generated. Many municipalities already have the rules and tariffs in place, and the remaining municipalities are supported by the WCG. Find out what the tariff is in your municipality for your home in the table below listed in alphabetical order. Find out more about installing solar PV.
