The leader of Zambia’s main opposition Patriotic Front (PF) party says the government’s announcement of a US$1 billion Chinese investment to help build an electric power plant is a “cheaply conceived” ploy to garner votes ahead of next year’s general elections.
One does not need licensing to construct a power plant in South Africa if it is for “own use”. Business can install power plants for own use without a licensing requirement. What about when it comes to municipalities if you develop a waste-to-energy project as a municipality. Would this still be defined as “own use”?
