Cape Town – South Africans are likely to "see red" if Eskom is granted permission to increase electricity tariffs by 17%, according to AfriBusiness.

“Eskom requested a 25% increase in electricity tariffs in 2015, which the National Energy Regulator of South Africa (Nersa) denied after the public, corporate South Africa and other organisations had objected to the proposed increase,” said AfriBusiness spokesperson Stefan Pieterse.

Pieterse called on members of the public and the private sector to submit written applications to Nersa to attend public hearings of Eskom’s application or to comment on it.
