RISING ELECTRICITY PRICES: THE ANSWER; PREPAID METERS
With the price of electricity constantly on the rise, we need to take steps to make sure we are not unnecessarily running up our electricity bills
In a calculation done by OUTA, it can be seen that from 2007 to 2017, Eskom has increased the price of electricity in South Africa by over 500%, in some cases the increases over a year being equivalent to 6 times that of inflation. With all the headlines we still see in the news about applications that Eskom makes to NERSA requesting permission for even more rate hikes, it is clear that this is not a trend that is in the past, and that we can still expect some more substantial increases in the future.
This makes keeping track of your electricity usage more important than ever. It is now far too easy to let your usage slip carelessly and to receive an outrageous bill at the end of the month, that is normally accompanied with threats to shut off the power supply unless you pay immediately. This problem is only compounded if you manage a property or rent property out to any tenants.
At ACDC Dynamics we have many solutions for you. The one that we would like to discuss now is that of prepaid energy meters. By installing these meters you will make sure that your electricity account never gets away from you again, as you will have to buy the prepaid units before using the electricity, so you can always keep an eye on just how much you are using. In rental units this will also take the onus off the owner of the property to collect the electrical bill from their tenants in arrears, as the tenant will have to pay for any electricity that they use up front.
So don’t delay. We have an excellent range of prepaid energy meters, find the one that will suit you best and install them today.
