Did you get a muncipal clearance cert when you bought the house?This is such BS.
I just moved into a house with a prepaid meter and my electricity fees have increased by almost 30% compared to how much I paid through Eskom's readings. (I will also add that I have a solar geyser and a gas stove in this house, where in the previous house, everything was electricity powered) I would not advise anyone to get a prepaid meter. It's just a more efficient way for this lot to screw us and steal from us.
I had the same issue when I tried to buy electricity via an online app, there was a R92.00 arrears fee? However, all my municipal bills are up to date.
I paid R100 of which R92.00 went to "arrears" and the other R8.00 is just MIA. I didn't even get my R8.00 voucher lol.
There's no way that I am using more than the 500 limit.
