Sechaba ka’Nkosi reports:

Eskom has put itself firmly on a collision course with the rest of South Africa as it stuck to its guns for a double digit electricity price hike amid a groundswell of rejection for its application to the National Energy Regulator of South Africa (Nersa).

Eskom yesterday reiterated its demand for the 12.61 percent tariff hike, charging that it needed 6.43 percent to fund its open gas cycle turbines to use diesel to avoid load shedding and 3.15 percent to subsidise its short-term power purchase programmes.
