With a concerted push from both Eskom and municipalities nationwide for as many homes and businesses to convert to prepaid meters, we all need to get to grips with how best to get along with our new prepaid meters. In order to get the most out of your meter, you need to start by figuring out how you are charged by the city. The rates charged are either Life Line single phase only, or Two Part Tariff, which is a single and three phase.
Should your home consume less than 800 Kwh per month, it’s better to be on the lifeline. Should your home use more than 800 Kwh per month, it’s far better to be on the two-part tariff. If you are on the wrong tariff option, then you could end up overpaying hundreds of rands per month.
Are Prepaid Meters More Expensive Than Normal Meters?
Not at all. A normal sub-meter often ends up costing you nearly as much, if not more as prepaid meters, depending where you buy and end up installing it.
