Energy expert hails victory for users as Eskom ‘agrees to reduce tariffs’


As you might already know, we, Dear South Africa, are working with Ted Blom and the Energy Expert Coalition on several energy-related issues.

Eskom has said they will voluntarily apply to Nersa to reduce tariffs in future once investigations have been wound up.

The Soweto National Energy Regulator of SA (Nersa) hearings into Eskom’s record-breaking R66bn RCA claim (Regulatory Claim Account) took an unexpected turn on Friday when Eskom was forced to present responses to accusations of fraud, corruption and poor execution.

So says Ted Blom, a partner at the Mining & Energy Advisors and Energy Expert Coalition.

After Eskom’s alleged avoidance of the issue, Blom launched a devastating attack in a press statement on Sunday night by again highlighting the hundreds of billions of rands lost to questionable spending and corruption. Blom, who claims to have revealed the extent of corruption inside Eskom after travelling to Nersa’s Cape Town hearings in April, said: “This has been a 10-year fight where Eskom have resisted at every step. I am pleased to say Nersa forced Eskom’s hand on Friday by demanding the issue be addressed in closing comments”.

Nersa insisted Blom present further arguments at the final hearings on Monday, 14 May (today).
