#Eskom In News: The Most Popular Tweets

Split Eskom into 2. One for distribution and the second one for build. Allow for independent power producers to come on stream more. This will allow for municipalities to purchase power direct from them, selling energy to consumers cheaper. The future of energy is greener

It cannot be that Cyril will conflate issues like this just because we are in the electioneering season, he knows very well that ESKOM is a cash cow for his comrades..

My fear is that Cyril Ramaphosa and his pro capitalism task team which includes Pravin Gordhan amongst others will propose a privatization of ESKOM!! We are in an endless current account deficit because of Thabo Mbheki and Mandela’s Privatisation of SOEs!!.

Nersa instructs Eskom to clarify fraud allegation via @SABCNewsOnline.

Eskom debt has over the year ballooned from R380bn to R419bn says Fin24. The cash strapped utility, which wants higher tariffs to pay off debt, and is using more debt to pay off debt. in essence, whatever mistakes were made, consumers have to pick up the tab via higher tariffs.

In times of @Eskom_SA generation capacity constraints - like now - where Eskom & DoE are operating their open cycle gas turbines to meet demand, renewable energy IPPs cut expensive diesel usage, reduce the need for load shedding, and save Eskom & the SA economy serious costs..

Paying an #Eskom increase at this stage is like rubber stamping corruption, inefficiency and mismanagement. First clean up your own house #eskom. Show us you are reliable and efficient. We are stakeholders. Like your investors. Treat us like that. With respect..

Eskom is sinking the economy in the name of greening it, claims Forum via @Moneyweb.

@navitassa @nesyhttam What crap. Roads destroyed, enormous costs generated by transporting coal, just to pollute the atmosphere and beneficiate cadre cronies and buy votes from workers. And REIPPP is cheaper than the 89c/Kwh Eskom wants to charge us..

45% tariff hike for Eskom; Ford customer fury; illegal dumping sites a health hazard; game over for The Orbit; Vitality app frustrations and Zimbabwe in meltdown! All coming up on #702Breakfast - call us 0118830702.

Whites often scream corruption when they are talking about state of institutions like Eskom but corruption is an empty slogan. When you ask figures & people behind they quote Guptas & millions of Rands but Guptas took less than 5% of Billions of Rands stolen at Eskom..

How much will you pay if Eskom is granted a tariff increase?.

It was White experts in Energy policy who advised incapable ANC government to procure Medupi & Kusile power stations at a crazy these experts are apartheid workers at Eskom running consulting companies which drain Eskom so Medupi &Kusile was another opportunity.

Eskom is in a dire financial situation, with R350bn debt it is unable to service from the revenue it earns..

@TimesLIVE South Africans paid what is due to Eskom, now is for you to follow the trail of the money to India and Dubai, please.

It’s storming, perfect to sit in bed and watch tv. BUT THERE’S NO DAMN ELECTRICITY @Eskom_SA - fix it 😩.

The protests in Zimbabwe may give the ANC pause re the massive electricity price increases demanded by Eskom and overall its economic policies and downward trajectory. But I doubt it, the comrades can’t help themselves, they got to do what they got to do. Viva.

And this is the crux of the #Eskom debacle, but We must pay more because of gross financial misdeeds. What steps are being taken to recover the money paid to former boards and managers? Nothing, but we “must play our part”. Eat my shorts..

Whites call for mass retrenchments in government entities like Eskom, SAA, Transnet, Municipalities etc and also call for abolishment of Social grants. Clearly Whites want to starve Black people to death. What is it exactly that Africans owe to Europeans vele?.

In motivating for a hiked electricity rate, Eskom must also tell us in detail how it will recover billions given to the Zuptas!.

Hadebe says tariffs are not a silver bullet, but it will help Eskom to get closer to servicing its debt. @Fin24 @TeamNews24.

#Eskom has become the biggest threat to SAs financial position, yet the ANC mentioned the utility only once in their manifesto, simply as a throw-away comment as if the country’s financial stability does not hang in the balance. - @Natasha9Mazzone.

The National Energy Regulator of SA starts public hearings today on Eskom’s proposed tariff hike. The power utility wants to increase electricity tariffs by 15% annually, for the next three years. Should Eskom be granted permission to increase electricity tariffs?.
