LICENSING OF STANDBY GENERATORS
Solomon Islands Electricity Authority (SIEA) trading as Solomon Power (SP) is the Producer, distributor and the regulator of electricity in Solomon Islands.
Section 30 (1) of the Electricity Act stipulates that no person or organization shall use, operators/supply electricity unless under a license of which its term expressly authorizes such use or supply of electricity as the case may be.
In this regards, all power generators at or above 50kW that have or may be installed in future for standby purposes, must be licensed by the Authority.
All persons with existing standby generators, that have not been licensed, are therefore kindly advised to submit your applications with relevant details in order for Solomon Power to process and issue you with a license; which will authorize you to operate and use the generator.
For new standby generators, an application will have to be lodged prior to installing/testing and commissioning of the generators.
For existing standby generators, an application will have to be lodged prior to installing/testing and commissioning of the generators.
For existing standby generators that are not licensed, Solomon Power is extending the grace period from 30th April June 2021 for applicants to submit their applications so that they are issued a license. Note that there will be no further extension of the grace period after 30th June.
At the expiry of the grace period, Solomon Power will conduct a mass survey for all standby generators at all its existing networks (in Honiara and at the Provinces), and persons with unlicensed standby generators (if identified) may be liable for prosecution under the Electricity Act.
To avoid disappointment and inconveniences, we urge all those with existing standby generators to forward your application to the
PO Box 6
Honiara or by
