Focus on solar water heaters as law takes effect October

What you need to know:

  • The regulations provide that a person who contravenes them commits an offence and shall, on conviction, be liable to a fine not exceeding Sh1 million or to imprisonment for a term not exceeding one year, or to both. 
  • According to the regulations, those to be affected are commercial buildings such as hotels, lodges, clubs, restaurants, cafeterias, laundries, eating places and similar premises.
  • Also to be under the radar are hospitals, health centres and clinics and similar medical facilities.  

The energy sector is set for a major transformation after a law that seeks to compel all buildings that use over 100 litres of hot water in a day to install solar water heating systems, comes into effect.
