Give South Africa its power back!

Support the DA's plan to keep the lights on and stabilise South Africa's power supply

For the past decade, the ANC has put band-aids onto bullet wounds at Eskom. Experts estimate that each stage of rolling blackouts, costs the country R1 billion per stage, per day!

When the lights go out, people stop working, business shuts down and our country slides even further backwards.

The DA has a plan to stabilise and secure South Africa’s power supply through our Cheaper Energy Bill, which seeks to break Eskom into two parts to make electricity cheaper and more reliable through the following measures:

🙅‍♂️Reject pressure from the ANC’s union allies opposing the introduction of Independent Power Producers (IPPs). Those who are harnessing the potential of renewable energy must be allowed to sell power to the grid immediately!

🏗️Freeze the build on the last two costly units at Kusile, and look to bring on more IPPs to provide power.

🛢️Allow Eskom to procure coal from any source, and review all diesel contracts, ensuring the cheapest diesel is sourced.

⛽Instruct PetroSA to supply Eskom with diesel at tax-free cost prices to avert a crisis in the short-term!

💡 Allow well-functioning metros to source energy directly from IPPs.

👩‍🏭 Reaffirm Eskom’s engineering and maintenance employees as an “essential service” that cannot enter into strike action.

📟 Install major smart meters for municipalities to force municipalities to collect revenue timeously.

Please sign this petition if you agree that it is time for the President to find the political will, and do what is best for South Africa.

Implement the DA’s plan. Save South Africa!
