Eskom would be sustainable with yearly tariff rises of 25% - study - Eskom would be sustainable with yearly tariff rises of 25% - study - South Africa's State-owned power utility Eskom could lop a further ten percentage points annually off its application for tariff increases of 35% a year between April 1, 2010, and March 31, 2013, and still emerge as a sustainable organisation able to fund its operations and its capital programmes, new research by consultancy Genesis Analytics asserts.
The analysis, which has been completed on behalf of several mining and industrial clients, including the Chemical and Allied Industries Association and AngloGold Ashanti, would be presented to the National Energy Regulator of South Africa (Nersa), which is scheduled to host public hearings into Eskom's tariff application between January 11 and January 22.
