DEDDIE, has followed up on last week’s announcement of its plan to clear a backlog of idle renewable energy source (RES) permits previously issued for projects that now stand no chance of being actualized by publishing lists of projects in question, divided regionally.
The operator has reiterated applicants will face a one-month deadline to resubmit their applications as a sign of genuine interest from the date upcoming notices are issued. Otherwise, their older applications will be shelved to make way for a new wave of interest in photovoltaic sysyems expressed by individuals and enterprises seeking to capitalize on a newly introduced net metering legal framework.
A total of 1,665 applications for roof-mounted photovoltaic systems with a total capacity of 14.32 MW had been submitted until the end of September, 2013, the most recent date for which HEDNO data is available.
The net metering plan will enable electricity consumers who generate their own power from an eligible on-site facility and deliver it to local distribution facilities to offset the electric energy provided by the utility during an applicable billing period.
