Eskom hopes to accelerate SWH roll-out as it doubles rebates - Eskom hopes to accelerate SWH roll-out as it doubles rebates - State-owned power utility Eskom is confident that an effective doubling of the subsidy levels for its solar water heater (SWH) rebate programme, coupled with the anticipated increases in electricity prices over the next three years, would lead to a bigger uptake of this technology by the South African public, spokesperson Andrew Etzinger said on Wednesday.
The utility this week announced to SWH suppliers that it would be increasing the rebates for purchasers of systems that were registered under Eskom’s SWH programme.
