Eskom Secrecy

Shed light on Eskom’s dark deals

Eskom has requested an exemption from transparency requirements in the revised Multi-Year Price Determination (MYPD)- the process which will set electricity prices from April 2018.

We believe Eskom is attempting to deflect attention from maladministration or probable corruption and are therefore presenting our reasons on why full transparency is vital, to the National Energy Regulator (NERSA) on 18 May 2017.

We oppose Eskom’s exemption request and will ask that NERSA stands its ground. Access to more detailed information enables the public to question the conduct and incessant tariff hikes which appear to be feeding corruption at Eskom. We need greater transparency and rational explanations for high electricity tariff hikes, whilst Eskom’s poor leadership and shocking auditing process allow waste and corruption to continue unabated.

Eskom wants exemption from the following disclosure requirements:

  1. Details of the regulatory asset base or, in layman’s terms, Eskom’s asset register.
  2. Research costs.
  3. Coal volumes burnt per power station per supplier.
  4. Coal handling costs per station.
  5. Water procurement costs per station.
  6. Water treatment costs.
