Eskom’s acting CEO Brian Molefe has given South Africans two options: pay more for electricity or face more load shedding – which will damage the economy.
On 8 May, Eskom made an urgent application to Nersa to increase the electricity tariff by 25.3% for the 2015/2016 financial year. This included the 12.69% price increase Nersa had already approved.
Local municipalities have also requested price increases, with Mookgophong municipality in Limpopo applying for a 35% tariff hike.
With electricity prices set to rise, and Eskom continually asking South Africans to save power and take pressure off the grid, saving a few kilowatts does have its benefits.
Here are a few ways you can save power, according to Eskom.
