DA: Break Eskom monopoly

2008-01-29 00:00

Cape Town — The Democratic Alliance (DA) has vowed to pursue all available policy and legislative avenues to ensure that Eskom’s monopoly as the sole purchaser of electricity in South Africa is done away with.

“The current policy position reserves Eskom’s right as the sole purchaser of all electricity generated in South Africa. Therefore, while provision is made for independent power producers to generate up to 30% of SA’s total electricity output, the power generated must be sold to Eskom and not to any other users.”
