This development is coming barely two weeks after 13 new companies were issued new licences for the generation of off-grid and embedded power, independent electricity distribution, as well as for the trading of electricity.

The new licences would allow the enterprise to generate and distribute electricity within the free zone.

The NERC made this known in a statement posted on its X handle on Monday.
