File: Eskom says the ongoing load reduction in several parts of Gauteng is due to persistent network disruptions caused by illegal connections.
JOHANNESBURG - Energy regulator Nersa has given Eskom the green light to recover R13.3-billion rand from South Africans.
This is for electricity supplied in the 2018/2019 financial year.
This will hit consumers particularly hard, as the country grapples with the COVID-19 pandemic.
Nersa says it will explain its decision, once certain requirements have been finalised.
It's also expected to draw up an implementation plan for recovering the tariffs.
Cash-strapped Eskom applied in 2019 to Nersa to retrieve back R27.3-billion rand from electricity customers.
