SCRAP THE RED TAPE! Should Independent Power Producers be allowed to immediately supply South Africa with electricity?

The presidency and Public Enterprises Minister Pravin Gordhan are looking for emergency solutions to end the load shedding crisis. This comes as several parties and groups outside the government put forward emergency plans. An emergency plan could suspend the IRP and expand private energy production massively.

    • Is there a need to immediately amend legislation?
    • What is best suited – renewables, coal, nuclear, hydro, imports or other forms of generation?

    ENABLING YOU TO SHAPE GOVERNMENT POLICY

    Dear South Africa is a legally recognised and constitutionally protected non-profit platform which enables the public to co-shape all government policies, amendments and proposals. We’ve run many successful campaigns and have amassed a considerably large active participant network of over 750,000 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 dearsouthafrica.co.za 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 do through the platform 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.
