Msunduzi claims its 10%

2013-11-07 00:00

THE massive hike in basic electrical charges means the Msunduzi Municipality has secured the 10% electricity tariff increase it wanted in the first place. That is if you factor in the MCB charges as well, says the Pietermaritzburg Agency for Community Social Action (Pacsa).

Pacsa’s Julie Smith said the MCB charge was not mentioned in this conversation, and Nersa may have believed that the hike was still below its seven percent benchmark. However, she said, the new basic charge, the MCB charge and the usage charges added together constitute a 10% increase. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
