With Eskom’s announcement of a 16% year on year increase,Utilities will become one of South Africa’s most expensive and valuablecommodities.
This will inevitably affect the consumer in more than justone area. With the cost of living rising at such an alarming rate and utilitiesbeing a need and not necessarily a luxury which can be scaled back, it falls toutility providers to create new ways of saving costs for the consumer. Thoughconsumers have various options to save on energy, such as using more energyefficient appliances, these cost money to replace. Service providers within theutilities market will have to re-evaluate their services and structures. Theaim would be to provide the consumer with the best service at an affordablerate, which does not compromise quality, service or down time.
Prepaid Meters.co.za has done just that: On the 16of January Prepaid Meters.co.za launched its new online shopping cart.
