Due to poor performance, poor management of infrastructure and on going corruption, the citizens of the country keep having to pay more and more for electricity, while simultaneously enduring load shedding. This is unacceptable service delivery and it is unjust to continue to expect the citizens to foot the bill for these issues.

The impact of Eskom’s application
Eskom needs to address corruption within its own generation entities, e.g. price and theft of coal and diesel, and then fully address the consumers that are illegally connected and stealing power.

Also allow healthy competition by allowing private generation and supply.

We just cannot afford the increases anymore!!!!!

It's easy for people up in their respective hierarchies to increase tarrifs but for the people themselves it's really heartbreaking. How on earth do you expect people to survive with this increase. Firstly sort out every location that is taking free power at other people's expense. Maybe if you get those people to pay for their electricity you won't be asking fellow citizens who really pay to live in this country to pay more for their lights. This is poor government choices and not fair to the fellow South
Africans.

We cannot continue throwing money at an inherent and endemic problem. We cannot continue burdening the SA taxpayer to fund inefficiencies, incompetence and mismanagement. Government and NERSA would do well by relooking at the Eskom Business Model and reinvent and transform it completely instead of passing the buck to tax and ratepayers.

Electricity is more than our bond repayment. We have many power outages. We cannot afford to live on our current payments for electricity. Please reconsider the many that pay faithfully monthly.

People are already struggling to survive as it is and now they want to raise prices again. It's unfair and it's not going to improve our standard of living.

Eskom's management is the party responsible for the steep increases in electricity prices we have incurred recently. It is unfair to always be passing the buck to the consumers.
The following matters must be addressed at Eskom in order to deal with energy price issues, not just simply increasing the tariffs, which has devastating effects to peoples pockets and the operating costs of businesses.
1. IPP's: The rate Eskom is paying to these is higher than it's own selling cost per unit. This is unsustainable. Ho on earth was this company allowed to get into such arrangements.
IPP's also provide intermittent electricity which is unreliable for keeping a stable grid. They are expensive and unreliable yet are the solution prioritized in our recent build program as a country. This is disastrous.
2. The Price Of Coal: The price of coal is highly inflated and management could simply demand better prices from the market rather than just being a passive price taker that is being swindled by coal suppliers.
3. Energy Availability Factor (EAF): The energy availability factor has been higher under previous management which had exactly the same fleet of power stations at their disposal. EAF must be made a key KPI for management. Teams that are unable to keep the system working optimally must be fired, because bad performance is being used as a case for expensive and intermittent IPP's.
If our current fleet of power stations was well operated and well maintained there wouldn't be a need to the current IPP build program which is a major factor in driving the electricity prices higher.

When will they learn that you have a budget and need to keep to the budget. Cut of all the people that are not paying. stop steeling the funds .

They need to set the application very strict, cause Eskom is messing around. Because they have been given money when ever you hear but everytime they need funds. Also we a customer is paying for there services but what do we get out of then loadshedding and increase on the electricity. Where we the lower class can't already not cope with what we have to spend a day on electricity. Also why must they feed other countries with lower electricity prices or even feed them where there only country is struggling.
