JOHANNESBURG, Feb 16 (Reuters) – South Africa’s High Court ruled that utility Eskom could recoup 10 billion rand ($685 million) more from customers via power tariffs in the 2021/22 financial year, a copy of the judgment showed on Tuesday.
The judgment was based on an agreement between Eskom and regulator Nersa.
Eskom, which is mired in a financial crisis, says one of the major reasons for its financial woes is Nersa has consistently awarded it lower tariff increases than it has applied for.
