AN Oslo Beach resident said she has had enough of what she says is “overcharge” on her electricity bill and wants to be converted to be prepaid, but the municipality won’t allow her. The resident, who asked not to be named for fear of victimisation, said for about a year the electricity bill at her house in Oslo Beach, where only one person lives, has remained at over R2 000.

“This is too high for one person and when I compare the metre reading to the one on the bill it does not coincide. “I have laid numerous complaints with the municipality, but nothing has happened. I eventually asked them to rather change me to prepaid, but they refused,” she said adding she did not understand why she could not change to prepaid because the option was available for “everyone else in the country”.
