‘City Power is open for business’: Joburg hosts its first Energy Indaba

Johannesburg executive mayor Mpho Phalatse said R26bn is needed to help fix City Power’s infrastructure, but the entire capital budget is R7.7bn, which includes not only electricity but other infrastructure such as water and roads. 
“There is no way the city alone can turn around the energy problems in Johannesburg.” She was speaking at the first Joburg Energy Indaba on Monday. 
The event will continue into Tuesday and serves as the city’s SOS for energy experts to help it with solutions and innovation that will keep the lights on in the country’s economic hub during the ongoing energy crisis.
