Changing tarrif Eskom Rural 1 tarrif. 3 phase down to single phase

Recommended Posts

I went from 3 phase land rate (fixed cost about R3.5k) to single phase prepaid (land light) when I put in my system.  No fixed cost and unit cost of power still less than diesel. This works well for me because I now use very little ESKOM power - about 500 kWh per year.

The conversion was slow (7 months, during lockdown) and dealing with ESKOM was annoying, but well worth it in the end.

Hi Gary and Calvin, perhaps either could answer a vexing question regarding ESKOM metering?

3-phase medium user, 350KVA supply ESKOM direct. Used to have access to meters but metering was changed to direct radio reporting and box locked. Would like to monitor usage to audit account, but have no access to meters?!

Is Eskom compelled to provide customers access to electricity consumption meters or not?
