The average tariff increase for various categories of Eskom customers arising from the National Energy Regulator of South Africa’s (Nersa’s) recent allowable revenue decision has been tabled in Parliament as is required for these increases to be legally implemented on April 1. On January 12, Nersa approved revenue of R318-billion for the State-owned utility for 2023/24 and R352-billion for 2024/25. Once translated to increases in Eskom’s standard tariff, these revenue increases amount to a hike of 18.65% for this financial year and 12.74% in 2024/25.
