City of Cape Town takes Energy Minister to court
The City of Cape Town is taking Energy Minister to court over renewable energy.
The City of Cape Town has taken Energy Minister Mmamoloko Kubayi to court to force her to give it permission to buy renewable energy. The city has set a target to source at least twenty percent of its energy from renewable sources by 2020.
This comes after a three-year-long battle between the city and Kubayi's office over the matter.
The city filed a court application to allow it to buy clean energy directly from independent power producers despite the minister having put a hold on new determinations.
