Eskom said on Wednesday it was in talks with the Botswana Power Company about the possibility of Eskom importing electricity.

“The commercial price and quantum are still the subject of negotiations,” Eskom said in a statement, adding any agreement would be subject to approval by South Africa’s energy department and energy regulator.
