Electricity prices increases by 15.7% despite continuous power interruptions

Electricity tariffs are set to rise from, 1 April 2021. But there is light at the end of this dark tunnel for community schemes.

The price of electricity in South Africa is hiked by 15.7%, according to the National Energy Regulator of South Africa (NERSA). The North Gauteng High Court has ordered that an amount of R10 billion be added to Eskom’s allowable revenue and be recovered from tariff customers in the 2021/22 financial year.

This electricity price increase has multiple implications for homeowners and community schemes - top of mind is spending more on an unreliable electricity supply.

It’s every South African homeowner’s worst nightmare: load-shedding, load reduction, and rolling power cuts. South Africa is currently experiencing a long-standing energy crisis, electricity supply has been erratic since load shedding first began in 2008 and there is no end in sight.

Many people are currently working from home, but have to commute to local restaurants and coffee shops in times of scheduled and unscheduled power supply outages. This amongst other common adverse effects of power outages, including possible damage to appliances and security threats, means South African’s have to dig deeper into their pockets whilst their quality of life decreases as a result of living in the dark.

There is light at the end of the tunnel for community schemes, however.
