Higher electricity generation threshold for companies the right decision

UASA welcomes Pres. Cyril Ramaphosa’s strategic decision to lift the electricity generation threshold for companies from 1 MW to 100 MW without a licence.


This is a step in the right direction and good news for companies who had their production processes disturbed by load shedding, resulting in added job and financial losses.

UASA believes the decision will boost the economy, save jobs and even open up capacity for additional job creation.

The concession will ease capacity overload on Eskom, and increase power supply for households, workers based at home offices and supply enough for the production needs of small businesses.

We urge Ramaphosa and Energy and Minerals Resources Minister Gwede Mantashe to investigate more practical solutions to fire up the economy and provide Eskom with the opportunity to get its business in order.
