Electricity tariffs, know what you pay for

Water tariffs increased by 12.96 per cent from July 1, which is the same increase pronounced by Rand Water – the city’s bulk water supplier.

The city’s electricity tariffs are applicable to those areas where the city is licensed to supply electricity.

The tariffs are categorised to fit different circumstances of residents and businesses, such as residents in stand-alone stands, complexes and flats.

The most prevalent tariff for residents is Inclined Block Rate Tariff (Tariff A IBT).

This tariff is structured into blocks which increase in price, according to the monthly consumption of a household.

The first block is for consumption of fewer than 100 kWh per month, which is allocated for free in terms of the City’s Free Basic Electricity policy.

The second block is for consumption between 100 kWh and 600 kWh where a R1.05,66 tariff is charged.

Those who consume into the next block, which is between 600 kWh and 700 kWh are charged R1.79,61 per kWh, after which the tariff becomes R5.02 per kWh.

Complexes, body corporates and flats are charged a differently structured tariff called Bulk Residential Complexes (Tariff B), which is applicable to the electricity resellers.

These tariffs will increase by between 5.32 per cent and 8.5 per cent from July 1, 2018 – subject to usage.
