Exclusively for our readers, we have opened all three (3) articles for the general public making them

With GEBE still experiencing major operational, technical and management issues, and the World Bank/Trust Fund giving GEBE a grant of 11 million US Dollars for rebuilding, reconstruction and improvement projects based on a NRPB program to make GEBE more resilient, now would be a good time to bring up the topic of Solar Energy for GEBE, government and all relevant stakeholders to look at.
As we know, it is technically possible for households and businesses producing energy from solar panels to feed the excess energy into the electricity grid and get compensation for this from GEBE using smart meters. So why isn't GEBE looking at this source of clean and renewable energy with unlimited production possibilities that can also lead to a reduction in tariffs across the board?
Naturally, the Waste To Energy (WTE) (as another alternative source of energy) debate can tie in in the periphery of this topic, but we want the focus to be on why GEBE isn't allowing consumers to use solar energy (legally) and feed the excess energy into the grid.
So let's have a look at this topic and have a debate on the topic of solar energy. We welcome any input from you the readers as well on this topic.
