Cape Town - Members of the public who wish to register for
public hearings on Eskom's tariff increase application have until Friday to do
so, the National Energy Regulator of SA (Nersa) said on Friday.
Last year Eskom applied to Nersa to hike electricity tariffs
by 16% over the next five years.
Nersa said in a statement that the deadline for
registrations for the hearings was January 4 2013.
Arguments made during the hearings would have an impact on
Nersa's decision to approve or reject Eskom's tariff application.
"Members of the public and stakeholders wishing to
attend and/or make oral representations at the public hearings are requested to
specify which hearing they will be attending by registering," the energy
regulator said in a statement.
The public can register by calling 012 401 4715/4033 or
faxing 012 401 4700.
