The Constitution 17th Amendment Bill had been intended to remove a stumbling block preventing the restructuring and consolidation of the electricity distribution industry (EDI) from some 180 municipal and six Eskom electricity distributors into an end-state of six “wall-to-wall” regional electricity distributors (REDs) serving the whole of South Africa.
