According to the city’s Mayor, Mpho Phalatse, Johannesburg energy redistribution company City Power has come up with a R26 billion programme that will stabilise energy supply by 2030.

Mpho added that the city is hoping to partner with independent power producers and small-scale energy generators to mitigate blackouts.
