Mayor Geordin Hill-Lewis says the City’s drive, to obtain more electricity from Independent Power Producers (IPPs), is at an advanced stage.
Hill-Lewis says through this initiative, hundreds of additional MW of power could be added to the City’s grid in the near future.
The Mayor this week proposed a 10-point plan, which he says if properly implemented locally and across SA, would help end loadshedding.
Hill-Lewis says one of the biggest hindrances, at the moment, is the multitude of bureaucracy and red tape that needs to be overcome, to fast-track the process.
