Eskom, revise your proposed increase of 20.5%!
On Friday, 14 January 2022, the executive mayor of Stellenbosch submitted a letter to the National Energy Regulator of South Africa (NERSA) following Eskom’s application for a 20.5% electricity price increase.
Eskom’s proposed increases of 20.5%, 15.07% and 10% for the next three years are going to have a detrimental impact on the economy given that electricity underpins a number of key sectors.
It is an extreme injustice that ordinary South Africans will be forced to bear the cost of Eskom’s inability to fix the mess it created. While constantly being expected to pay more for electricity, South Africans seem to be getting less of it. An increase in line with the consumer price index (CPI) of 5.5% would have been a more reasonable tariff increase for Eskom.
Have your say, and support our rejection.
Sign the petition, and send it to your friends and family and let us say no to the Eskom proposal!
