Last month, the City of Cape Town published their 2017/2018 provincial Draft Budget stating that Capetonians who own properties valued at more than R1 million would soon pay a new R8.21-a-day electricity tariff.
This proposal would reportedly be implemented from July 1.
Kieno Kammies spoke to Green Energy SA owner, Roy Potter. The company installs energy saving devices.
He shares details on the business of saving electricity and how to help keep your electricity bill low.
We offer a free service where we install a logging system into the clients home or business, we leave it there for a week, ask the client to use electricity the same as usual. After a week we analyse the data, compile a report and we can point out the baseline and see from the graph the peaks such as when a geyser is switched on.— Roy Potter, Green Energy SA
