Kenya: Parliament dismantle penalty for solar water heating systems

The Parliament of Kenya has annulled the law  imposing a Sh1 million ($9,970) fine or one-year jail term for property developers and home owners who fail to install solar water heating systems in their buildings.

According to the Daily Nation, national assembly’s committee on delegated legislation threw out the ERC rules on grounds that the Sh1 million fine contravenes the section of the Statutory Instruments Act (SI Act) that limits fines payable under the Act to a maximum of Sh20,000 ($199) or a prison term not exceeding six months in default.
