South Africans with solar panels could pay 1,000% more for electricity than big power users

South African households that use both their own solar power and Eskom's grid could soon be paying up to 10 times — or 1,000% — more for electricity than the country's biggest power users.

Sunday newspaper Rapport reports this is one of the implications of a new electricity pricing methodology planned by the National Energy Regulator of South Africa (Nersa).
 
They should worry first about:

Rooting out corruption,
Proper maintenance (consistent supply),
and non paying municipalities/households then they'll have enough leeway for the solar households which only exist because of incompetence that led to the above.
 
Nersa aims to finalise a discussion document on the new methodology in February.
The media needs to start a discussion on the subject of cadre deployment within NERSA.

Clearly the cANCer putty is pulling the strings everywhere and those strings need to be severed with extreme prejudice.

Tsek! You should decolonize your mind.

Seriously though...

Eskom wants all consumers to be charged a volumetric energy tariff and a daily network fee, independent of usage.

Tsek.
 
That's like saying people who use e-mail for communication should pay 10X more to send post through the post office or people who watch youtube should pay 10X more for TV license.

SA is moving in the direction where that you will have to pay for electricity that gets consumed by government for free, pay for police but hire your own security, pay for TV license but not own a TV, pay for SAA but never fly them, pay for rail infrastructure that isn't functioning, pay for etolls but don't drive through toll gates, pay for a military that can't find a war, pay for government employees to sit idle in an office as they have no skills to get a job in the private sector, pay for ANC crony companies to overcharge 10X for tenders they themselves can't do and have to subcontract, pay for SOEs because their employees can't get job in the private sector , pay for fakes news that the government creates etc etc.
 
I don't know how much more they want to milk us, with this rate, we are going to just handover our pay check and a bit more to the government, and then they probably still want their tax money on top of it.

You mean they should look at their own faults and not blame the public? Where have you seen a gov run entity ever do that? Especially in SA? lol

You have a very in-demand and quite literally "we need this to live" resource that Government has long milked for money and theft. Now renewable energy is threatening that cash cow for them. They're going to try all they can to keep it alive. I'm pretty sure many many many a multi-millionaire in ZA owes it directly to pillaging from our power infrastructure through tenders, and there are many many more wanting to do the same.

Which confirms my stance that a grid tied system is not a good plan. They know who and where you are and your Kusile is tied to their Kusile. I remain independant from their Kusile.
 
You have more rights as a non payer these days than a good one. All these network fee garbage should just be ignored by everyone like TV licences, etolls and aarto fines.

We have been there for a long time already. Taxpayers receive nothing, zip, nadat, zero, hubsqweet, niks for our tax money.

They will still hit you with network fees. What's right and just doesn't matter to them at all.
 
Will this only apply to Eskom's direct customers, or will municipalities also be allowed onto the billing bandwagon?
