The Impact of Small Scale Embedded Generation on Municipal Revenue
This paper which was presented at the AMEU Conference 2019 explores the impact of some of the approved municipal SSEG tariffs on municipal revenue and customer ‘business case’ and outlines key tariff elements to balance access and cost recovery, until such time as detailed costing studies provide specific tariff building blocks (SEA, 2019).
Small-Scale Embedded Generation (SSEG) Tariff Guidelines Summary
Summarises the principles for setting SSEG tariff, with a focus on solar PV, and discusses revenue impact and customer business case considerations. Case studies are presented and broad guidelines given for tariff setting (Sustainable Energy Africa, 2019).
Metering for Small-Scale Embedded Generation Guide
Provides information to assist the choice and procurement of bi-directional metering for SSEG, including types and configurations of meters, links with smart metering systems, and relevant metering specifications (Sustainable Energy Africa, 2019).
SSEG General Information for Public
Non-technical information on SSEG for householders and other non-technical customers, covering which systems are allowed to connect and how to go about applying to connect such a system, as well as other general information on SSEG in the municipality. Can be an information flyer for customers when municipalities have their SSEG processes in place.
Small-Scale Embedded Generation Policy
A generic municipal policy document covering the overarching requirements and process of including SSEG onto the municipal network. This typically forms the primary municipal policy around SSEG and can be used for council submission. The policy document refers to the more technically detailed Requirements for Embedded Generation document, which thus forms part of the policy.
SSEG Application Control Document
Full checklist to be used by municipalities when assessing an SSEG application, covering all of the checks to be undertaken before the proposed system can be accepted. The Control Document is normally attached to an application as it arrives, and guides officials through all steps of the assessment process.
