Eskom to submit tariff application within weeks

Engineering News 11 October 2012.

State owned power utility Eskom expects to submit its tariff application to the National Energy Regulator of South Africa (Nersa) within “the next two weeks”.

Addressing a state-of-the-system update on Friday, CEO Brian Dames said that the final touches were being put to the submission, which was initially meant to be handed over to Nersa on August 31.

Eskom was forced to revise its third multiyear price determination period (MYPD3) following a request from government, which wanted the application to reflect some of the new-build options covered by the Integrated Resources Plan, but not included in Eskom’s initial draft…

(Editor’s note: This statement is confusing: “It had been reported separately that Eskom would be seeking yearly increases of between 14.6% and 19% over the period” It should read “… increases of between 14.6% and 19% per year over the period”)
