CEB rolls out smart meters and PV initiatives

Published

on

Mauritius’ Central Electricity Board (CEB) reports islandwide rollout of smart meters and two solar PV initiatives.

The state-owned power supplier has reported that some 50,000 smart meters have been installed to date and the remainder will be implemented gradually over the course of the next few years.

In addition to the replacements, new connections will be installed with smart meters.

In total there are over 465,000 electricity customers in Mauritius, according to the CEB’s data.

Goals of the schemes, which were announced in the country’s budget in June, include supporting the reduction of CO2 emissions and the achievement of renewable energy targets, including 35% and 60% shares in the electricity mix by 2025 and 2030 respectively.

The schemes also support democratising the electricity generation business by supporting customers to engage in electricity production, according to the CEB, which will purchase the electricity generated over 20 years.

With the launch of these schemes, earlier schemes including the Medium-Scale Distributed Generation (MSDG) Renewable Energy Scheme, the Public Sector Entities Renewable Energy Scheme and the Smart City Renewable Energy Scheme are closed from 31 December 2021.
