EV Charging Using Solar PV

In late 2021, the state-owned electric utility of Mauritius initiated a policy to incentivise the deployment of 20 MW of household and commercial solar PV systems for charging EVs. Customers accepted to the programme will be permitted to install the solar systems to power their vehicles, and eligible customers will be able to deduct the full cost of the system from their income tax. Any excess electricity generated by the solar PV systems will be exported to the grid and bought by the utility under a gross metering approach. This programme is part of the country’s goal to reach 35% renewable electricity by 2025 and 60% by 2030.
