Apply to take part in our pilot electricity wheeling research project<h2 class="sectHeading">​​​​​​​​​​About​​​​​​​</h2><p>This pilot research project will include a limited number of third party participants to investigate, test and  finalise the wheeling facility. The pilot will take place over a minimum of one year, and will end with the full implementation of our wheeling facility. </p><p>We have established a set of <a href="" target="_blank">wheeling rules</a>, tariffs and a draft agreement. We are in the process of finalising the technical requirements for the connection of generators > 1 MW to our grid, including a <a href="" target="_blank">draft Grid Connection and Use of System Agreement</a> for such connections, as well as changing our billing processes and systems. </p><h2 class="sectHeading">​​​​​​​​​​Apply​​​​​​​</h2><p>Applications closed on <strong>Thursday, 30 June 2022</strong>. </p><p>The pilot will be conducted in terms of the City wheeling rules. In addition to any restrictions in these rules, the City may limit the number of customers per supplier, the number of generators, as well as any other aspect that is linked to system, regulatory or legal constraints. </p><p>Wheeling of electricity under the pilot project will only be allowed subject to the necessary generation approvals, grid connection approvals, any necessary Eskom wheeling agreements, metering data in the required form and format (NRS 049-5-2) being available, and customers entering into a<a href="" target="_blank"> wheeling supply agreement </a>with the City. These requirements may not necessarily be applied in the selection of participants.</p> <span> <div class="notification with-heading dark-copy pink bg-light-grey"><div class="graphic with-border"> <i class="info note">​​​</i> </div><div class="desc"><h4>Please note</h4><p> The City reserves the right to select and appoint particpants in the pilot research project in its sole discretion based on information provided by the applicant.</p></div></div></span> <p>Selected applicants will be required to enter an agreement with the City in order to participate in the pilot research project. <br></p> <span> <h2 class="sectHeading">​​​​​​​​​​Apply to conduct the research component​​​​​​​</h2></span> <p>Members of academic and research institutions can collaborate with us and apply to undertake the research component of the pilot study.
