Johannesburg starts prepaid meter update before next year

South African City Power has begun its installation and reset of prepaid electricity meters in Johannesburg before they all stop working next year. According to News24, the electricity entity began visiting customers in residential homes in Hursthill on Wednesday, with 200 City Power agents targeting 4 000 households daily. There are close to 300 thousand prepaid electricity meters that the City is responsible for.
It will take the City less than 70 days to complete the project if City Power hits its 4 000-a-day target.
