Last updated: 10 January 2018

As part of a pilot project, under this Scheme, the Central Electricity Board (CEB) plans to integrate a total cumulated capacity of 10 MW of Medium-Scale Distributed Generation (MSDG) using renewable energy technologies (mainly photovoltaic and wind power generation technologies) in the Mauritian grid and 400 kW in Rodrigues subject to network impact assessments.

The MSDG - Net-Metering Scheme I, designed under the principle of net-metering, has been officially opened in May 2016.

The main aim of the Scheme is to offer the opportunity to medium-size power producers to benefit the grid interconnection facilities by interconnecting their renewable energy installations into the grid. To the extent it will be technically and economically feasible, in order to assure non-discriminatory consideration, the constrained grid access shall be shared equitably among all prospective prosumers.

Note: Application into scheme closed on 14 July 2017.
