Circular mess

Tuesday, Jun 25, 2024

The 2017 Net Metering Policy allowed residents to capture solar energy, converting their rooftops into small-scale power plants and reducing their electricity costs. Contrary to some rumours, net metering has not been scrapped and there has not yet been a fixed tax on solar.

However, the issue of high electricity costs for metered connections (non-solar) remains a critical matter. If the contracts with IPPs are not revised timely we will be facing serious consequences in the form of total circular debt and anarchy in the country.
