The electricity tariff increase is proposed at 6.9% which is a 50% reduction from the anticipated increase in the MTREF.
An increase of 23% was initially forecast to balance the municipal budget. However, following the review by the Budget Prioritisation Committee, negotiations with Umgeni Water Board to reduce their tariff increase to 6.9%, a tariff increase of 9.9% is being proposed.
Compared to last five years’ increases of 15%, this is a welcome relief to consumers. The City has made every effort to keep eThekwini’s sales tariff to a minimum. The rollout of the Western and Northern Aqueduct projects have also impacted the water tariff increase.
