New meter reading SMS number

2017-12-12 06:00

THE city’s electricity unit has upgraded its meter reading SMS service and switched over to the new short SMS code 30909 last week.

The old meter reading SMS number 083 700 0819 is no longer operational.

Normal standard rates will apply to the usage of the SMS service.

A customer should include their name, the property’s account number, the meter reading and the contact number.

An SMS with the reading should be sent four days prior to the bill date on the account.

The municipality encourages customers who want to avoid an estimated bill to use the SMS service.- Supplied.
