The Minister of Mineral Resources and Energy invites interested persons and organisations to submit written comments on the draft  Electricity Regulation Amendment Bill.

Comments must be submitted to era@dmre.gov.za by no later than Friday, 25 March 2022

Cabinet states:

The Bill proposes amendments to the Electricity Regulation Act, 2007 (Act 28 of 2007). The proposed amendments broaden the national regulatory framework for the electricity supply industry.

They align  the country with the international best practice in energy and provide for the functions of a Transmission System Operator, and for a licensing framework for power generation, transmission, distribution and trading.

The  proposed amendments form part of several steps the country is taking to reform the electricity sector towards achieving a stable and secure supply of energy. They will also strengthen the performance of the electricity industry and ultimately create a conducive environment towards growing the economy.
