    You should take it up with your municipality. As far as I know it is calculated when they check your usage.

    Doesn't your pre-paid rate reset every month?

    The pre paid rate is calculated based on average usage over a 12 month period - I think. It is not month to month as it used to be in the past.

    I really don't understand the logic behind paying more the more you use. Shouldn't the rates go down as you use more. Buy bulk get a discount.

    If you getting electricity from Eskom directly on prepaid, its tiered (reset monthly)
    e.g

    0-100units you pay x/unit
    101-200 units you pay y/unit
    201-300 units you pay z/unit

    The average should be re-calculated every month if the city follows their own published rules. So it will take some months, and could even take a year if you are now using 450 units per month. It's best to keep track of this yourself because the city has a tendency to ignore the rules since that way they make a bigger profit.

    It's been average usage over 12 months for some years now.

    Yes, if there is endless supply. Take water as an example, if it was cheaper the more you used everyone would have an incentive to use as much as possible to get classed as a bulk user.

    As long as you build your infrastructure properly there should be an effectively endless supply.

    And you'll get the money to pay for endlessly increasing infrastructure by charging those who use more higher prices.
