Judgement was reserved today [Wednesday, 15 June] in what could be a watershed case with far-reaching consequences for electricity pricing in South Africa.

A case in the North Gauteng High Court was brought by a group of four Nelson Mandela Bay businesses, and the Nelson Mandela Bay Business Chamber as a fifth applicant, to set aside the additional electricity increases that took effect in April this year.

The Nelson Mandela Bay Business Chamber is forging ahead with the legal case to get electricity prices in the country reduced.

As one of the prominent business chambers in South Africa we took the lead in lobbying on behalf of our 700 members on this very pertinent issue that is affecting the sustainability of our member companies.

The Nelson Mandela Bay Business Chamber, together with various energy intensive industrial companies based in Nelson Mandela Bay, last week brought an application to prevent Friday April 1’s electricity increase.

The Nelson Mandela Bay Business Chamber has joined the case of the High Energy User Group (HEUG) - consisting of several energy intensive industrial companies based in Nelson Mandela Bay- as a co-applicant, in the launching of an interdict to stop Friday’s electricity hike, approved by the National Energy Regulator, Nersa.

The Nelson Mandela Bay Business Chamber, representing the interest of our 700 membership base, has joined the HEUG with their legal case to apply for an interdict to stop, and subsequently review, the proposed tariff increases, as approved by Nersa earlier this year.

The Nelson Mandela Bay Business Chamber is extremely disappointed with the increase awarded to Eskom, as it constitutes once again an unaffordable hike for businesses operating in Nelson Mandela Bay.

This comes as the National Energy Regulator (NERSA) announced today [subs: 1 March] that in analysis of Eskom’s Regulatory Clearing Account (RCA) application for the first year of the third Multi-Year Price Determination (MYPD3) (2013/14), electricity tariffs will be increased by 9.4% for the 2016/17 financial year.
