 “The introduction of Inclining Block Tariffs (IBTs) is benefitting low income domestic customers in South Africa. This is according to the findings from a study conducted by the National Energy Regulator of South Africa (Nersa) into the impact of the implementation of IBTs on residential customers.


The implementation of IBTs was approved by Nersa on the 24th of February 2010. The objective was to cushion the effect of rising electricity prices for low income residential customers in accordance with the country’s electricity pricing policy. The study, commissioned on the 12th of October 2011, looked at the impact of IBTs on different customer groups.”
