Representing the Electricity Resellers of South Africa

The concept of reselling electricity in South Africa has been around for many years. A number of our members have been in existence for 20 years or more. If we take into consideration bulk supplies of electricity to Body Corporates, landlords and other large commercial buildings it goes back even further.

The bulk supply point platform was created by City Councils needing to lessen their administrative and cost burden due to the greater prevalence of high density urban developments. Reselling started as a need by property owners, landlords and Body Corporates to have a metering service to individual consumers beyond a bulk supply point.

The Reseller is the main association between the
 supply authorities (Eskom and Municipalities) and the end consumer.
