ANC media statement on NERSA

25 June 2009

The African National Congress (ANC) welcomes the decision by the National Electricity Regulator of South Africa (NERSA) to structure the the electricity increase in a manner that distinguishes light to heavy users of electricity.

The increase effectively means that light users will get a 15 percent increase while industry and heavy users will pay 31 percent extra. While the ANC acknowleges the burden this has on South African households, we also recognise that NERSA was cautious in its decision.
