HELP US KEEP THE LIGHTS ON – GOAL R 30 000
My family and I would like to ask for assistance in paying off our electricity and rates bills so that we can apply for pre-paid installation and maintain our rates bills.
The bills have accumulated over the years and we’ve tried but we can’t keep up with the payments and the meter readings that they use to determine the bill are estimated, they don’t actually check.
We had made a payment arrangement a few months ago when we owed over R25 000.00, we have since failed to honour the arrangement and can’t make another one at the moment because it requires us to pay 60% of the total bill upfront. We won’t be able to afford that at least until December.
Last week we received a final demand letter which gives us 14 days to pay the bill in full or our services will be disconnected. We’re expecting them to cut off our electricity by Friday.
My mom is the bread winner in my family and this has been very stressful for her. Please assist where you can.
There are two different accounts. The Electricity Account and the Rates & Taxes Account, both in arrears. Even a R50 contribution to one account will make a difference.
I have attached the latest statements from both accounts and the final demand letter. Please Note: The Total Due amount on the Electricity bill is the amount before the arrangement was broken. The Total Due on the final demand letter is the current one of R17 503.28.
