GEYSER MANAGEMENT SYSTEM AUDIT TO BE UNDERTAKEN IN BITOU MUNICIPALITY

Eskom and Bitou Municipality joined forces to install a residential load management (or geyser control) system in Plettenberg Bay. These geyser relays or units were installed to enable the Bitou Municipality to move a substantial portion of the residential evening peak geyser load to the off-peak period (after 20:00), when there is less strain on the national electricity grid. A total of 970 new relays were installed and 780 old relays were reconnected which brings the total number of relays that can be managed by the Municipality during peak demand times to 1750. The Bitou Municipality and Eskom wish to thank Plettenberg residents for their positive attitudes and support in allowing the installation of these relays.

Geyser audit technicians, Jason van Rooyen and Chadd Botha.

As part of an auditing process by Energy Insight (Pty) Ltd, homes in the following areas in Plettenberg Bay will be visited by two technicians as part of a capacity and verification audit to be undertaken from 25 March to 29 May 2015:

  • Plettenberg Bay Central
  • Whale Rock
  • Robberg
  • Longships
  • Piesang Valley
  • Brackenridge
  • Poortjies
  • Marine Way area
  • Beacon Way area

According to Mr Willie Botha, Project Manager: Energy Insight (Pty) Ltd, the aim is to verify whether all relays are in a workable condition and also to verify the exact number of relays that are being controlled by the municipality. There will be no cost to the homeowner.

The two technicians, Jason van Rooyen and Chadd Botha (pictured above), are employed by Energy Insight and will present proper identity cards (displaying logos of Eskom, Bitou Municipality, Energy Insight (Pty) Ltd and EOH). Access should only be granted to these two technicians upon displaying their identity cards.

Residents who are not at home during the day, are requested to contact willieb@energyinsight.co.za orruxannew@energyinsight.co.za to arrange a time which is convenient for a visit.

Further enquiries can be directed to Energy Insight, tel (012) 345-5215, or via e-mail on willeb@energyinsight.co.za.
