New meter reading sms line

ETHEKWINI Municipality’s Elelctricity Unit  has upgraded its meter reading sms service and switched over to the new short sms code 30909 from 1 December 2017.

The phased-out 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 his/her 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.
