Eskom has argued its case for the National Energy Regulator of South Africa (Nersa) to grant it the R66.6-billion it is claiming, including for unforeseen expenses and unrealised revenue for the past three financial years. An Eskom team on Monday kicked off countrywide public hearings in Cape Town on the third Multi-Year Price Determination (MYPD3) Regulatory Clearing Account (RCA) applications.
