This is in line with guidelines by the National Energy Regulator of South Africa.

This means customers consuming 350kWh per month will pay R75,61 cents more.

City Power says tariffs are increased annually and considers factors, including the increase allowed to Eskom as a bulk supplier and inflationary adjustments to City Power's operating costs.
