How Electricity Meter Technology is Helping South Africans Become Wiser Consumers


Why Electricity Meters Are the Future

It’s not difficult to come up with a host of reasons as to why electricity meters continue to enjoy such expansive growth in South Africa. Whether you’re a landlord or a tenant, you will benefit from employing this technology in your daily life. These meters track and record the use of electricity in the home. It’s the much-celebrated replacement of outdated analogue meters that are manually read once a month by a utility provider. If the provider’s agent is unable to gain access to the meter, they’ll guestimate the amount due and charge the consumer accordingly, often leading to heated confrontations with utility providers.

Instead, electric meters automatically capture information about electricity consumption. It also makes it easy for consumers to learn how their electricity usage is impacting on the amount they spend on power each month. This helps consumers become more attuned to the way they consume electricity and can teach them new ways to save money throughout the month. It’s a much better proposition than being provided with a large electricity bill at the end of the month and then having users wonder how they accrued such vast amounts.

Instead, users are able to view their electricity in real-time, making it possible for them to adapt their lifestyles in such a way as to maximise electricity use and consumption. This is just one more way that electric meter technology benefits the end consumer. Landlords and investors are also protected against the exposure of being saddled with large electricity bills if tenants ever decide to abscond or deny electricity charges. Given all of this, it’s easy to see why electric meters’ popularity in South Africa continues to grow by the day.
