Joburg City Power ready to work with independent power producers to provide cheaper energy – SABC News

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.
