TENDER – LEGAL CONSULTANT- Legislative Review of Solomon Islands Electricity Act Cap. 128

SOLOMON POWER invites tenders from legal consultants to carry out the Legislative Review of the Solomon Islands Electricity Act Cap. 128.

The Electricity Act, is the legislation that established the Solomon Islands Electricity Authority and regulates all aspects of electrical power supply and usage in the country. The Solomon Islands Electricity Authority as a State Owned Enterprise is also governed by the State Owned Enterprises Act 2007.

Although the nature of electricity supply has changed significantly in Solomon Islands, the laws which provide for its advancements is beginning to be out- dated, irrelevant and in some sections and are inadequate to address the changes technologies and systems in the electricity industry. With continued industry developments, shifting emphasis on modernisation of laws and regulations, and increased focus on modernisation of the Authority and state owned enterprises in general, there is an increasing appreciation within the relevant government Ministry and the Authority itself for the review of the legal framework that governs electricity in Solomon Islands.
