Description for case is given below :
Eskom produces the world’s cheapest electricity by using coal-fired plants, most of which have not been retrofitted to meet World Bank standards. Moreover, most South Africans without electricity burn wood, which creates even more air pollution than coal. Should Eskom retrofit its coal-fired facilities and raise the price of electricity or continue to expand its inexpensive electrification program?

In some communities, as much as 80% of the electricity is illegally obtained. How should Eskom deal with this problem?

Description for case is given below :
Committed to spending approximately $400 million annually to provide 1.75 million South African households with electricity by 2000, Eskom had to forfeit an additional $300 million because of consumers’ nonpayment for service. The company also faced rising operational costs as a result of consumers’ illegally tampering with their electrical connections. These costs had increased to such an extent that annual costs were higher than annual sales in many of the areas Eskom served. This illegal behavior had evolved under an oppressive regime that forced many consumers to steal from the existing infrastructure in order to access basic services.

Case Name :      Eskom and The South African Electrification Program (B)

Case Length :    02 pages
Solution Sample availability : YES
Plagiarism : NO (100% Original work)
Description for case is given below :
After Eskom implemented a viable plan for providing electricity to more than 1.75 million South African households, many of its customers failed to pay for service, which resulted in a debt of approximately $400 million by 1997. This negative consumer behavior was not necessarily unjustified, as South Africa’s black citizens had historically used consumer boycotts as a means of protest against the apartheid state, so the country’s consumer base had evolved in an environment where nonpayment was often seen as a social norm rather than negative behavior. Recognizing that consumers’ behavior was the result of living under an oppressive regime, Eskom needed to address this seemingly intractable situation.

Case ID :           UV1873
Discipline :        Finance
Case Length :    13 pages
Solution Sample availability : YES
Plagiarism : NO (100% Original work)
Description for case is given below :
Eskom, a South African electric utility company, spends roughly 30% of its annual profits to implement a national social-initiative project, a countrywide infrastructure development program to provide electricity to the citizens of South Africa, who were often denied access to basic services under apartheid. In this way, the company hopes to fulfill its goal of becoming a “model corporate citizen.” The case examines social, political, and corporate historical information, together with consumer and marketing data, vis-a-vis a viable plan for financing the program and distributing electricity to more than 9 million end users. But after four years, the program costs Eskom more money to operate than it gets from annual sales.
