The Gauteng Provincial Government (GPG) has expressed confidence that City Power will assist the province to build power generating capacity, including delivering 100MW to the grid within the next year, to address challenges of energy availability in Gauteng as part of the Provincial Alternative Energy Plan.
This vote of confidence was expressed on, Thursday during a site visit to City Power’s facilities by Finance MEC Jacob Mamabolo, accompanied by MEC of Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs Mzi Khumalo, the state-owned utility’s Chairperson of the Board Bonolo Ramokele, and City Power's CEO Tshifularo Mashava.
During the site inspections, City Power unveiled initiatives aimed at reducing load-shedding in Gauteng, including plans to add 100MW to increase generation capacity and limit persistent power cuts. City Power committed to a 100MW reduction in load-shedding across Gauteng in the next 12 months.
