Introduction   

 

Generators (IPPs) that wish to connect to Eskom's network will be required to apply for a connection, pay a connection charge and sign a connection and use-of-system agreement.  IPPs will be provided non-discriminatory access to Eskom's network.  This access is, however, subject to the IPP obtaining its required approvals such as EIA's and a generating and trading licence from NERSA
Once connected, Eskom shall raise use-of-system charges based on the Maximum export capacity of the generator and based whether the generator is connected to the Transmission or Distribution system.
