VAAL TRIANGLE - The Emfuleni Local Municipality says it will today commence with the process of replacing electricity smart meters. ELM said in a statement that installations will start in Falcon Ridge before moving to other areas. The new replacement meters will be installed in the Distribution Board (DB)/ Green Box outside the households. A Customer Interface Unit (CIU) will then be handed over to customers for consumption monitoring and loading of electricity units. The municipality has secured the services of Tsekema Consulting Engineers for the installation of 8,000 split prepaid meters in all the affected Emfuleni areas within the next six months. Tsekema will carry identification cards to access the households for uninstalling old meters and demonstrating how the new replacement meters function. For more information, residents can call 016 950 5258/ 5141. The municipality will provide regular updates through various media platforms.
