Welcome to the Eskom Prepayment web site.
Prepayment falls under Technology Group in Eskom and is managed by the Protection Telecomms Measurement and Control (PTM&C) Department. Because Prepayment operation is not clearly contained in a single resource environment, the operations are spread over two different areas as part of the PTM&C Department.
The Prepayment Metering part is officially
managed along with Conventional Metering, DC Systems,
Protection and Telecommunications. The Vending
and Key Management functions are managed by the Prepayment
Development area. To ensure good integration and
inter-compatibility, the metering resources are actually
permanently part of the Prepayment Development work
although they still report to Control Technologies as
well. Refer to the Contacts
page for some details of this relationship.
All the day-to-day operations in the Eskom Regions are still managed by the individual Regions themselves. There are several permanent forums that the Regions use to consolidate all important issues. Three of the most prominent ones are:
Eskom will add several Online Vending Clients to serve our customers better and to accommodate the requirements from the National Energy Regulator to support step tariffs. The Vending related information can be found under the Vending page.
Vendors who are interested to sell prepaid electricity for Eskom customers, must tender as part of an Eskom Request For Proposal (RFP) enquiry. The last RFP was issued for 2013/14 and the contract durations will last from three to five years. No dates have been decided for a new RFP at this time.
