Scrap the Electricity Home User Charge- City of Cape Town.DA Led Administration, Dan Plato

0 have signed. Let’s get to 10,000!


The City of Cape Town is changing the way it charges for power because we as residents are using too little electricity. Instead of incentives for Lower usage, The City of Cape Town seems it fit and proper to charge us for lower usage and consumption. 

Let us, the people unite and  strongly object   to the City of Cape Town charging us "Electricity Home User Charge" of R142 a month.

In addition to the 'Home User Charge' we are further 'raped by Power' by paying approximately R1.8532/kWh for the first 600 units per month, and R2.1032/kWh after that.
