Nersa calls for public comment

2015-05-15 06:00

THE National Energy Regulator (Nersa) will only make a decision whether it will authorise Eskom’s application to hike tariffs by 25,3% on 29 June.

Energy expert Chris Yelland tweeted that the public should bear in mind that Eskom already implemented approximately half of the 25% increase for which it is making an application on 1 April.

Direct Eskom customers have paid 12,6% more for electricity since April 1, while Eskom charged municipalities 14,2% more. Households will only know in July how their municipalities will pass on these tariff increases.

Nersa invites comment.

E-mail or send letters to PO Box 40343, Arcadia, 0083.

The closing date for written comments is 15 June at 4 pm.
