Fulfilling the Department of Provincial and Local Government Requirements

Red Cap gel fuel fulfils the Department of Provincial and Local Government’s requirements for an Alternative Energy Source. It is further identified as an Alternative Energy Source in the Department of Minerals and Energy’s (DME) ‘Free Basic Energy Guidelines’ document. 

Red Cap gel is an Alternative Energy Source that offers a cost-effective, safe and empowering energy solution. Red Cap gel product range is ideal as an energy source in informal housing as it meets the basic needs of cooking, heating and lighting. 

The safety and health benefits of Red Cap gel as an energy source has far-reaching quality of life and empowerment outcomes. 

Bringing a safe, cost-effective and efficient energy source to your constituents is now easily and readily available. Implementing this Free Basic Alternative Energy is made a reality through accessing funds from Government’s Equitable Share allocation to municipalities. 

The Department of Minerals and Energy further states that the Equitable Share allocation can be spent on Alternative Energy sources as it “facilitates provision of access to other forms of energy.” [Paragraph 2.4 of ‘Free Basic Energy Policy Guidelines’, Department of Minerals and Energy (DME).
