Deadline today for Eskom hike objections

Jan 04 2013 15:17

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. 

Alternatively they can also register by email on
