THE COURT CHALLENGE
Court Application to Interdict 1 April 9,4% Tariff Hike
We believe that the National Energy Regulator of SA (NERSA), is currently applying its mandate and regulatory framework, in a manner that does not sufficiently tackle Eskom’s inefficiencies, allowing them to pass on their losses to the public, through unacceptably high tariff increases and bailouts by the state.
OUTA insists that NERSA should fulfill its legislated mandate by not allowing Eskom to recoup from the public monies it has lost through its own poor leadership and management.
Instead, they need to hold Eskom’s management to account for its unacceptable and gross failings, whilst providing detailed input on the contracts and turnaround plans for improved processes and service to the people of South Africa.
On 31st March 2016, OUTA will be in court to interdict the Eskom Tariff Hike of 9,4%, granted by NERSA, the basis of which is provided in the attached media release available here
