Just as a bit of warning for all of you late night Wednesday prepaid token buyers:
“The City of Cape Town’s electricity prepayment vending system will be switched off for planned maintenance from 22:00 on Wednesday, 17 September 2014 until 05:00 on Thursday, 18 September 2014,” a statement said.
“Consumers are advised to please ensure that they have sufficient units to carry them through this period.”
You can check that your credit will last from your Homebug dashboard! You’ll see right there how many weeks, days or hours your credit will last (based on your REAL consumption history). And right from there you just click the little shopping basket to top up.
PS: If you’re direct with Eskom, then you won’t be affected by the City of Cape Town upgrade (fingers-crossed!)
