Cape Town - The National Energy Regulator of South Africa (Nersa) will start its public hearings on Monday as part of Eskom’s application to recover an additional R22.8bn through an electricity tariff increase.

The Nersa public hearings will start in Cape Town and end in Midrand on 5 February.

Nersa approves electricity tariff increases for Eskom based on a number of assumptions on factors such as electricity demand and cost of primary energy. Depending on how those assumptions pan out, Eskom is either owed money or owes the public.
