Published by Ken Nunes on 01/07/2015


The 2015/2016 Electricity and Water tariff increases comes into effect as of today - 1st July 2015.

In Johannesburg, Electricity tariffs will increase by 12.19% whilst Water and Sewage tariffs will rise by 14.00%.

What does this mean to your school?

Electricity:

Present Cost     Increase              New Cost

R100 000             R12 190              R112 190

R200 000             R24 380              R224 380

R300 000             R36 570              R335 570

R400 000             R48 760              R448 760

Water and Sewage:

Present Cost      Increase             New Cost

R100 000             R14 000              R114 000

R200 000             R28 000              R228 000

R300 000             R42 000              R342 000

R400 000             R56 000              R456 000

Imagine the not uncommon scenario that your schools' present annual Electricity bill is R200 000 and Water R300 000, you will be paying an additional R66,380.00 per year.

The discussion phase of efficiency is officially over...enter implementation!!!
