City of Johannesburg approves electricity wheeling for IPP’s

News Flash

  • Johannesburg City Council has approved generator-use-of-system tariffs (wheeling tariffs).

‘In line with our vision of the future service delivery model away from strictly electricity distribution entity to energy solutions service provider, the City of Joburg Council has also approved generator-use-of-system tariffs (wheeling tariffs). The tariff will be applicable to generators of electricity who may want to service customers embedded within the City Power area of supply but will be charged to their respective end customers,” said the Johannesburg City Council in a press statement.

“The tariff will also be applicable to customers who self-generate electricity for use at a location elsewhere on the City Power electricity distribution network. Third party generators who would like to supply a customer/s within the City Power network will be required to apply for third party access to our network infrastructure. Though City Power is obliged to give such generators ‘third party” access to its network at a reasonable charge for services rendered or “wheeling services”, it will be subject to compliance with our safety requirement.” the city added.

No further details provided.

The City of Johannesburg also recently announced a 14.97 % electricity tariff hike for its residents effective 1 July 2023.
