Eskom needs more money

By Khanyisa Tabata

Eskom says the massive loan it received for the construction of two power plants is not enough and it needs more money.

In a bid to fund programmes to produce more power and address the country’s electricity crisis, Eskom has signed a loan agreement with five French banks for some 13-billion rands.

However, media reported that this is a drop in the ocean compared to the more than 300-billion rands Eskom needs to fund its expansion project.

South Africans can expect to pay much more for power next year as Eskom is expected to be granted a tariff hike.
