ANC Caucus GPL welcomes a historic milestone in diversification of electricity provision

The Power Purchase Agreement signed by the Executive Mayor of the City of Johannesburg, Councillor Mpho Moerane, and Gauteng Premier David Makhura at the Kelvin Power Station this morning to provide an additional 100MW from 80MW to the residents and businesses of Johannesburg will contribute, significantly to the alleviation of the electricity supply challenges. The erection of extra units in this power station will not only contribute to the grid but will also create sustainable jobs and contribute to the livelihood of the residents and ratepayers of Johannesburg and to the economy of Gauteng. 
 
We welcome this positive development by the ANC- led City of Johannesburg and ANC lead Gauteng province. This represents a solid foundation on which we plan to rebuild our economy in Gauteng as a result of power challenges and due to the destruction of the economy by the Covid pandemic. 
 
Issued by the Office of the Chief Whip, Cde Mzi Khumalo.
