Electricity Act 2007 as amended in 2016 (Net Metering Rules)

This document notably aims to reduce the investment requirements for independent producers adding power into the national grid, and to allow customers who generate their own energy to reduce their reliance on the grid, and to promote the production and use of sustainable renewable energy sources including in small scale projects.

All renewable energy technologies are eligible for net metering. All distribution consumers are allowed to install net metered facilities.

The document sets the regulatory framework on net metering, including carbon credits for consumers who self-generate energy.
