This tariff will be implemented initially on a voluntary basis to 10 000 surburban residential customers in selected areas, together with advanced metering infrastructure (AMI), commonly known as smart metering technology. The smart meters assist customers to view their TOU consumption and to manage their electricity consumption better in the comfort of their homes.
The Homeflex tariff will be marketed to surburban residential customers in a phased approach once the AMI enabling technology is in place in the targeted areas.
