Farmers are opposed to Eskom’s proposed 20,5% tariff hike, which they say will have a devastating impact on the agricultural sector.

Eskom is applying for a 20,5% tariff increase to National Energy Regulator of SA (Nersa), which is expected to come into effect in April this year. A virtual public hearing on Eskom’s revenue application for 2022/2023 was held last week.

Spokesperson of uMzinyathi Farmers’ Association, Herman de Wet, said the increase on electricity prices will have a negative impact on businesses and the farming community.
