Phakamani Hadebe, Eskom Interim Group CEO

Eskom turns 95 years today, 1 March 2018 and the organisation celebrates this occasion with 100 380 households that have connected to the national grid over the past six months.

The National Treasury has allocated ZAR17.3 billion to Eskom and the municipalities to electrify a further 640 000 households over the next three years.

South Africa hopes to achieve universal access to electricity by 2025.

Through a successful electrification programme, more than 5 million households within Eskom’s licensed areas of supply have been electrified since 1990.

According to Statistics South Africa, over 90% of South Africans have access to electricity, with the majority of new customers now being electrified in more remote and deep rural areas

“Turning 95 years is great milestone for our organisation and a self motivation as we manoeuvre through the liquidity and governance challenges that we are currently grappling with as the organisation. What is more striking about Eskom’s proud heritage is that people have and will always remain at the heart of this business whose history is deeply embedded in the history and the development of South Africa,” Phakamani Hadebe, Eskom Interim Group Chief Executive Officer.

“Together with the Board, we are busy formulating a strategic framework that will ensure that this institution survives another 100 years,” concludes Hadebe.
