Johannesburg city officials said it was ready to receive independent power producers which will help it to provide its customers with cheap and invigorating energy.
City energy president Tshifularo Mashava addresses the media at Johannesburg’s first Indaba Energy Indaba currently underway in Sandton, north of Johannesburg.
He says the fire industry needs about R26 billion to address aging energy infrastructure.
Mashava says City Power buys most of its electricity from Eskom, which it sells to its customers, and they want independent power producers to do the work.
“We buy 90% of Eskom but it does not help us very well. It is costly and not reliable. We would like to get a contract to buy more power and those who can do it “We will choose the most sustainable approach in terms of renewals.
“As we sit here today, a lot of customers are moving in other directions. They have solar, gas. We would like to interact with customers on the trip.
This partnership is for energy conservation, so that we can cope with the power crisis, and for cheap and reliable energy ”Tshifularo Mashava.
