Company profile
The Southern African Power Pool (SAPP) was created in April 1995 through the SADC treaty to optimise the use of available energy resources amongst the countries in the region and support one another during emergencies. At the time of creation, the SADC governments agreed to allow their national power utilities to enter into the necessary agreements that regulate the establishment and operation of the SAPP. SAPP membership was therefore restricted to national power utilities of the SADC member states as indicated in the Inter-Governmental Memorandum of Understanding (IGMOU). In the revised IGMOU of February 2006 SAPP-membership was also made possible for other Electricity Supply Enterprises.
