Eskom Meter Recoding Initiative Progressing as Scheduled for November 2024 Deadline

Eskom, the primary electricity provider in South Africa, is undertaking a critical project to recode prepaid electricity meters throughout the country. This initiative is driven by the impending expiration of the Token Identifier (TID) code, which is set to occur on 24 November 2024.

After this date, all Standard Transfer Specification (STS) compliant meters will no longer accept credit tokens, affecting a significant portion of the country’s meters.

Eskom has provided an update on its Key Revision Number (KRN) rollover project, which aims to ensure that all 6.8 million prepaid electricity meters under its purview are recoded before the deadline.

Phase 1 of the project, which took place in August and September 2023, addressed initial challenges and process issues.

Commitment to Completion:

Eskom’s General Manager for Operations Enablement, Velaphi Ntuli, has affirmed the commitment to the KRN rollover project. Provincial teams are working diligently to meet the recoding deadline. The project recognizes that challenges are inherent, but every effort will be made to ensure successful implementation.

DIY Approach:

The recoding project employs a Do It Yourself (DIY) approach for convenience and cost-effectiveness. Eskom provides step-by-step guides through various communication channels, including social media platforms, the Alfred Chatbot, and the Eskom website. This approach streamlines the process for customers.

Monitoring and Support:

The progress of the meter recoding project is centrally monitored through a dashboard, and customer support mechanisms are in place to provide assistance. Customers will receive a pair of key change tokens when purchasing their regular prepaid electricity through approved vending channels and outlets.

No Cost to Customers:

It is essential to emphasize that the recoding process is free of charge to customers. Eskom strongly advises against scammers requesting payment for this service. The DIY nature of the project means that Eskom employees will assist only those customers who have logged queries and received proper reference numbers.

Buying Electricity Unchanged:

The process of purchasing electricity remains unchanged. Customers can still buy electricity from major banks, online platforms, fuel-filling stations, prepaid electricity vending agents, and retailers across the country.

Customers are urged to prioritize meter recoding, as failure to do so will render the meter inactive after 24 November 2024.

Monday, 10 July 2023: Stage 4 loadshedding is being implemented until 5:00 a.m. on Tuesday due to increased demand. On Wednesday, Stage 4 loadshedding will be implemented from 14:00 until 05:00, followed by Stage 2 loadshedding from 05:00 to 14:00.

There will be a daily implementation of this pattern until further notice. A new update will be published if any significant changes are made.

As of now, 14 252MW of generating capacity has been damaged by breakdowns, while 4 118MW of generating capacity has been out of service for planned maintenance.

As of today, Duvha, Hendrina, Kendal, Kriel, Matimba and Medupi power stations have each reactivated a generating unit.

The Arnot and Tutuka power stations each had a generation unit out of service due to a breakdown during the same period.

Tutuka Power Station’s current capacity constraints are due to the delay in resuming two generating units. In order to restore service to the generating units, Eskom teams are working around the clock.

Members of the public are being encouraged to use electricity sparingly and efficiently, and we want to thank the people who do heed the call. During the period between 17:00 and 21:00, please turn off your geysers and pool pumps as this reduces demand, alleviates pressure on the power system, and contributes to fewer stages of load-shedding.
