The EIUG welcomes the opportunity to contribute to this important consultation in the determination process for Eskom’s fourth Multi-Year Price Determination (MYPD4) Regulatory Clearing Account (RCA) Year 1 (2019/20) application. To this effect EIUG will comment only to a few aspects of the balances being applied for but focus more on some of the issues which repeatedly results in the volatility of the prices be it through RCA or recent court reviews.
In essence we believe the key issues to this application relate to
- i) The poor maintenance regime applied by Eskom;
- ii) The unsuitability of the pricing methodology or alternatively its implementation challenges; and
- iii) The absence of a forward-looking price path in getting to cost reflective tariffs.
Attached please find our response as annexure to this letter.
