Tribunal to look at Tshwane’s non-compliance with the Electricity Regulation Act

Nersa rejects the City of Tshwane’s controversial electricity tariff application for 2019/20.

Energy regulator Nersa has rejected the City of Tshwane’s electricity tariff application for 2019/2020, instead allowing the municipality to add 13.07% to the previous financial year’s tariffs for the current financial year.

This follows the city having unlawfully levied the hikes it sought without Nersa’s approval. This included a basis R56 charge to residential customers and R250 for those paying agricultural tariffs.

The regulator will also set up a tribunal to ensure that residents who were overcharged are refunded by the city.

Nompu Siziba speaks with Antoinette Slabbert, a journalist at Rapport, about the latest decisions.
