JOHANNESBURG - Eskom has won a tariff battle against energy regulator Nersa.
The High Court has ordered Nersa to process and consider Eskom's revenue application which determines the tariff change in April next year.
It’s understood that Eskom had applied for a 20 percent increase in tariffs from April next year.
Nersa wanted a new pricing methodology to be used and rejected the application.
The court ruled in Eskom's favour, saying that the existing application should be considered until the new methodology is published.
