Listener describes tedious solar system registration process with CoCT

The City has also issued a statement announcing the deadline for the registration of solar photovoltaic (PV) systems as 31 May 2019.
But listener, Peter Dekker, says he's been struggling with the process because it is not a simple matter at all.
