Government moves to stop use of solar energy

This is well put. We shouldnt look at the matter of regulating solar energy
from the prism of the dismal performance of the KPLC – at least in a large
number parts of the country like where I come from where blackouts are the
norm rather than the exception.
A free for all solar energy industry would be a recipe for disaster and an
opportunity for exploitation of the consumers of the service. A well
intended regularory mechanism would also spur development of the sector.
All that needs to be done is to ensure that the regulation does not
occasion bottlenecks in the industry by way of high costs on licensing,
procurement of the equipment or taxation.
