ERC: Solar Water Heating

All upcoming buildings may soon be required to install solar heating panels once the Energy Regulatory Commission gazettes a new regulation. The commission has already forwarded to the Attorney -General the final draft of the regulation which will make it mandatory for all premises whose consumption of heated water exceeds 100 litres to install solar panels. Developers have however raised concern that the regulation was likely to push up the cost of properties, but ERC Director - General Kaburu Mwirichia says benefits will far outweigh resultant losses. Wanjiru Gaitho reports.
