Government has announced its intention to talk to Independent Power Producers (IPP) to try…

Government has announced its intention to talk to Independent Power Producers (IPP) to try and persuade them to lower the prices they charge Eskom for their electricity. Public Enterprises Minister Pravin Gordhan says Eskom pays high prices to IPPs for electricity generated from older renewable energy projects. Gordhan says the aim of the negotiations with the IPPs is to “balance out” the price Eskom pays for power. The Minister says some IPPs have expressed a willingness to engage. The country has experienced widespread loadshedding in the past week as the power utility battles to keep the lights on.

  1. Let them pay less for that BEE tender-trepreneur coal Suppliers! It 3 times more if we get it from China or Botswana! Let that ipp erect their own infrastructure to their clients they wish to serve! I’m gonna withhold my taxmoney for the next 3 year’s to invest in my own electricity generators for myself

  2. They want to pay less but they are making us pay uo to 45% more for our power?? What a bunch of pathetic idiots!!!

  3. IPPs should stand their ground, they’ve got Eishkom by the short and curlies.

    Nothing personal, it’s just business, simple supply and demand.

    If they bend to Eishkom then Joe Privateer gets sodomised without lube, after which Joe Public has to fork out to suit Eishkom’s pocket, and gets sodomised without lube, and because Eishkom will still fail ANYWAY Joe Taxpayer will have to touch his toes and take it without lube…again.

  4. Lets hope the outcome filters to the consumer in the end….
    Otherwise it’s another lost cause….they make huge profits we still pay premium rates
