National Electricity Regulator of South Africa (NERSA) approved the electricity tariffs FROM
2012/2013 with the following stipulations:
“The Energy Regulator further requires that the municipality restructures the domestic prepaid non-indigent tariff by introducing a basic charge for the financial year as the energy block rates are extremely high.”
In order to comply with these stipulations, Hessequa Municipality made provision in the 2014/2015, 2015/2016 and 2016/2017 budget for the implementation of the basic fee on all prepaid electricity meters.
For you convenience we have compiled a summary of the 2016/2017 Prepaid electricity tariffs in our August 2016 newsletter. Please see below:
