The Democratic Alliance (DA) has called on the Auditor-General of South Africa to audit the National Energy Regulator of South Africa’s (NERSA) pricing and regulatory account determinations on an annual basis.
Nersa has reportedly withdrawn oppositions in two court cases against Eskom, and conceded to having made mistakes in calculating tariffs for the power utility, costing Eskom billions in revenue.
In a third court case, fault against Nersa has already been determined.
The DA’s Shadow Minister of Mineral Resources and Energy, Kevin Mileham says a fourth case before court will likely follow suit.
He says such “mistakes” will cost the already beleaguered South African consumer dearly.
