NERSA short-changing S.Africans on its electricity division’s activities
In an open letter to the National Energy Regulator (NERSA), OUTA has called on the regulator to reconsider the extremely limited consultation process it has started on its electricity division’s strategic planning.
NERSA announced the process on Twitter on 15 March and in an e-mail to stakeholders on 18 March. The NERSA consultation paper is dated 10 March but it does not appear to have been published then, says the Organisation Undoing Tax Abuse (OUTA).
The energy regulator set the deadline for public comment as 20 March and plans to host a virtual public hearing on 24-26 March.
The NERSA consultation is about strategic planning for its electricity division. This includes a strategic assessment of the electricity supply industry (ESI) and challenges in the sector.
NERSA has drafted several broad questions for comment, including what needs to be fixed in the electricity supply industry (ESI) and how should it be fixed, and what is working well in the electricity sector and why?
