Cape Town residents have until March to apply for cash-for-power programme

# Capetonians have until the eighth of next month to apply for the city’s initial cash-for-power programme, enabling residents to sell surplus rooftop solar energy to the municipality. Launched last June for businesses, mayor Geordin Hill-Lewis emphasises its role in combatting future load-shedding. He encourages eligible residents to participate, assuring that further rounds will follow for latecomers. The application process is simplified and Hill-Lewis highlights efforts to alleviate frustrations, with an online portal nearing launching.
