PRETORIA - The City of Tshwane will from September start charging its prepaid customers a 13.07 percent increase, as approved by the National Energy Regulator of South Africa (Nersa).
Nersa approved the city's proposal to increase electricity tariffs by 13.07 percent for the 2019/2020 financial year, but the proposed hike met with opposition from AfriForum.
AfriForum went to court in a bid to reverse the city's decision to implement the increase.
In court, both parties proposed to engage in talks with each other and suspend the legal route to solve their impasse amicably.
They then agreed that the city would reverse tariff increases effected on July 1, until Nersa's final determination on the matter.
