Eskom wanted 19.9 percent tariff increase, got 5 percent
This is less than the 19.9 percent Eskom had requested.
Eskom has said the 2.2 percent tariff increase it was granted by the energy regulator for 2017/18 had presented challenges to the company’s liquidity position for the current financial year, and hoped it would get a higher raise this year.
It was granted a 9.4 percent tariff rise in the 2016/17 financial year. ■
