  • Prepaid Meter Installations

    There are two categories of pre-paid meters

  • Primary meters
  • Primary meters are installed at your electrical point of supply from the municipality.
    Primary meters are installed by electricians appointed by the municipality
    All queries regarding the installation of primary meters should be addressed directly to your local municipal offices.

  • Secondary meters
  • Secondary meters are installed at the point of supply to a sub-distribution board that is fed from your main distribution board.
    Secondary meters will record the amount of electricity consumed by the sub-distribution board
    Secondary meters are installed by private electrical contractors and are not a municipal function.
