THE ADOPTED 2013/14 INTEGRATED DEVELOPMENT PLAN (IDP)
JOIN US to manage the electrical load
Home-owners in Duvha Park, Duvha Park x2, Tasbet Park, Reyno Ridge, Bankenveld, Reyno Estates, Reyno Heights, Benfleur, Del Judor, Witbank extensions, Fransville, Model Park, Seekoeiwater, Die Heuwel, Ivory Hill, Cambridge, Highveld Park, Hoëveldpark, Blancheville, Jackaroo Park, Clearwater Estates, Pine Ridge, Schoongezicht, Ferrobank, Ackerville, Van Delenweg, Lynnville and Thushanang are requested to join hands with the eMalahleni Local Municipality and Eskom to help manage the electricity demand – by participating in a programme aimed at installing geyser control units connected to the geysers in their homes. The control units will be installed at no cost to the home-owners.
This Residential Load Management (RLM) project forms part of the eMalahleni Local Municipality’s demand management initiative in the region. It involves the connection of control units to geysers, making it possible to switch them on and off remotely without impacting negatively on the hot water usage. It allows the municipality to manage the demand for electricity specifically during evening peak periods.
Geysers account for between 30% and 50% of the electricity consumption in a household, making them an ideal starting point for electricity demand management in the residential sector. The main advantage of the load management system is that the relay system can switch the heating element off during times when the electricity load needs to be reduced. However, it is important to note that interruption of supply can be done while still providing hot water to a household due to the heat retention properties of a geyser.
The RLM project in eMalahleni will be implemented as follows:
- A small appliance control device (or relay) is installed in the home of the customer.
- This device then switches off the power supply to the geyser during the evening peak demand period between 18:00 and 20:00.
Qualified technicians, with eMalahleni Local Municipality, Eskom and Yaetsho identification cards, will visit homes in high-consumption areas to install the units between 1 October 2012 and 30 June 2013. Home-owners are requested to only allow contractors with the necessary identification cards to enter their homes.
CLIENTS ARE REQUESTED TO QUOTE THEIR MUNICIPAL ACCOUNT NUMBER IN ALL CORRESPONDENCES/PHONE CALLS. THIS IS SOLELY FOR IDENTIFICATION PURPOSES.
