NERSA Consultation Paper: Guideline for Electricity Reseller Tariffs

Readers may remember the NERSA consultation paper on a proposed 'Guideline for Electricity Resellers/Traders Tariff in South Africa' that was published last year. Later that year, a public hearing on the consultation paper was held. In both its written submission on the paper and during the presentation (by Leshan Moodliar of eThekwini), the AMEU argued that the reselling industry needed a regulatory framework rather than merely `Reseller Tariffs. Interestingly, NERSA then published a new consultation paper with a similar title, `Guidelines for Electricity Reseller Tariffs’, on 9 February 2015. This paper dismisses the concerns of the AMEU. Read all about it here.

Stakeholders and members of the public are invited to comment on the consultation paper in writing. The deadline for comments is 9 March 2015.
