4 Feb 2015: Solar geyser rebate has been extended!!

DoE extended the rebate – Media release, dated 4 Feb 2015

Eskom notified the SWH (solar water heating) industry on 7 January 2015 that their rebate comes to an end on 31 January 2015 and would be handed over to the Department of Energy (DoE).

The DoE notified the SWH (solar water heating) industry via their media release, dated 4 Feb 2015, that the rebate is now extended by the Department of Energy (DoE) for another 5000 systems to be installed in South Africa with the same rebate amount per system as with the Eskom rebate programme. DoE will provide more information about their future rebate programme soon. 

Extract from the DoE letter:
“With effect from 2 February 2015 the Department has availed subsidies (up to a cap of 5,000) buy sildenafil citrate 100mg. The number of subsidies is informed by past performance of the partial rebate programme under Eskom (about 2,000 monthly installations over the past nine months). No further subsidies will be available under this programme once this cap is exceeded.
