Short Term Urgent Electrification projects – Twenty-seven homes for Ikapa Electrified

The electrification of 27 homes in Ikapa Informal Settlement have been finalised just before Christmas, as the final of three Short Term Urgent Electrification projects that were prioritized by Council (March 2021) using the available budget for the 2020/21 Financial year. The cost per structure for electrification is between R10 000 – R13 000 which includes a prepaid meter.

Each resident receives their own electrical prepaid meter, in their own name with power supply of 40 amps.
