The new increases range from 8.88% to 13.37%.
The impact on the electricity tariff hike will apply to residents who own a prepaid meter in a house worth more than R1 million; or have a credit meter regardless of property value.
Residents who fall into that category are expected to pay a new, fixed R150 a month, no matter how much electricity they use.
They will then pay a rate of about R1.8532 per kWh for the first 600 units a month and R2.1032/kWh after that.“]
ENABLING YOU TO SHAPE GOVERNMENT POLICY
DearSA is a legally recognised and constitutionally protected platform which enables the public to co-shape all government policies, amendments and proposals. We’ve run many successful campaigns over the past 18 months and have amassed a considerably large active participant database of close on 700,000 individuals across the country and beyond.
We do not run petitions. We run legally recognised public participation processes which allow citizens to co-form policy at all levels of governance. Whereas petitions, even if they contain thousands of signatures, are considered as a single submission by government, our process ensures that each comment made through DearSA is recognised and counted as an individual submission by government.
Furthermore, we keep an accurate record of all participation and produce a publicly available report at the end of each project. This report forms the foundation of a sound legal case should the necessity to challenge the decision arise.
Participation costs you NOTHING, and is so easy and quick to through DearSA that you really have no excuse not to help shape policy BEFORE it becomes law. Legally challenging implemented law is costly and rarely successful. Prevention is better than cure.
Participation in decision-making processes means a possibility for citizens, civil society organisations and other interested parties to influence the development of policies and laws which affect them. We’ve made it easy for you as a responsible citizen of South Africa, to influence government decisions before they are made.
Participative Democracy is encouraged through the PAJA – the Promotion of Administrative Justice Act, and enshrined in our Constitution.
Every decision the government make must be published in a Government Gazette and must include evidence of public participation. If the public do not participate by objecting or agreeing, their non-participation is deemed as a non-objection, a tacit agreement.
Each comment from any of our web sites is immediately sent as a separate email to the relevant government representative designated to each project.
We do not sell your info on to anyone and we do not charge for what we do.
