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 R500 million 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:

  • Privatise electricity generation. This includes allowing citizens to generate their own power to keep the lights on.
  • Change the law so businesses and individuals can sell the extra electricity they generate onto the grid for others to use.
  • Offer a R75 000 tax rebate to cover the cost of installing solar systems in homes, to take pressure off the grid.
  • Zero-rate VAT on LED lightbulbs and energy-efficient appliances.
  • Ease the regulatory requirements for sub 100MW generation, to bring small Independent Power Producers (IPPs) online quicker.

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!
