We cannot be forced into continuously paying for what we install at our OWN expenses.
Governments cannot manage their own affairs and think a BUDGET is a TARGET ...
if i am insolvent i CLOSE DOWN, as simple as that but Government Agencies are continuously bailed out with my TAX MONEY.

NO NO NO NO TO ANY FORM OF TAXES AND REGISTERING OF ANYTHING THE PUBLIC DOES to get away from being OVER CHARGED ....

South Africans are already struggling financially with the extreme cost of electricity. We CAN NOT be forced to pay a licence fee to help clear our carbon foot print and save the word. The cost of recycling product are already so expensive and we all need to work together to save the country from pollution for or children

Anything a government does to undermine the free market will result in a stagnant economy. If Eskom wasn't so useless we wouldn't need generators or solar panels.

eskom is unable to meet the demands of the nation and the surroundings nations. Its answer is more coal, a dirty source of energy though cheaper in the short run. Alternatives should be rewarded not taxed, as they lift some of the burden from Eskom allowing it then to provide quality service to those in need of such service.

In order to survive and not become a FAILED STATE, like so many African countries, South Africa need to encourage people to use alternative energy sources, not penalise them for doing so. In fact they should probably be rewarded. Feeding back into the grid is a different matter to a stand-alone system. It must be controlled.

The quicker non Eskom electricity is implemented in this Country, the better for all. Eskom with its highly paid and over staffed personalia needs competition/alternatives to become a streamlined and performing business, Currently Eskom and its overweight just milks business SA and paying consumers.

Yes I support the registration but not the licence fee.

Taxing our ability to harness sunlight to better our lives violates the constitutions preamble which says, and I quote "Improve the quality of life of all citizens and free the potential of each person". This proposal violates both the first and second part of this sentence.

They have put us in the position where we have had to outlay huge money to provide our own reliable electricity because they stuffed it up in the first place through mismanagement and corruption . Now they want to charge us for this ?We are being run by a bunch of low grade mental delinquents!

Ba nnyela. Why should we be subjected to their non-sustainable and expensive solutions whilst we have cheaper systems? If they want to milk people through electricity, they must provide it to the rural poor first.

Off Grid has nothing to do with municipalities or any other government body, All the infrastructure was supplied & funded by me.
Since Eskom has proven to be a burden to our pockets and unreliable, we should be encouraged and subsides to use solar & renewable energy methods.
NOT PENALISED FOR IT

Off Grid has nothing to do with municipalities or any other government body, only need regulation when supplying to someone else.

Energy generation should be free from government fees since Eskom is doing so badly especially solar and other renewables.
