Given the threat of both an energy and water crisis, President Jacob Zuma has encouraged the private sector to “go green”, with government now looking to increase the energy efficiency incentives on offer. 

Eskom has confirmed that a price increase will be implemented on 1 April 2015.

City Power is set to implement a residential time-of-use tariff system that will allow the utility to price electricity at different rates during the day.

Eskom has today implemented stage two load-shedding due to a shortage of generation capacity.
