South Africans Against Rate Hikes

In a week, 12,000 people have liked a Facebook page which is against the proposed 24% Electricity Rate Hike in South Africa in July 2015: https://www.facebook.com/eskomprotest/

I started a petition in December and 411 people have signed it so far!

It calls on Eskom and the Government to Level the Playing Fields and allow competition in Electricity Provision. The ANC's 1998 policy White Paper on Energy called for 30% of the grid to be in private ownership by 2010 and the 2003 White Paper on Renewable Energy put in place the processes like Feed in Tariffs to allow Renewable Energy to be part of the mix. But this hasn't happened. Please sign


and show your support for the alternatives. Don't just be against something. Be for something as well!
