We have applied for permission to feed back to Eskom on a Ruraflex plan in the Western Cape and the following interesting points came up.
1: The meter that gets installed with the Ruraflex point is ready to handle feedback.
2: The Credits for all the units you feed back are then stored in a “Bank” (Eskom refers to it as banking)
3: The units you feed back can then be bought back at 30c per unit.
4: The units that you banked during off peak rates can then be used only in off peak times and the same for peak rates and all the other rates in between.
5: If more than 1 ruraflex point is registered on your name, you can feed back on one and buy back on another connection, this is especially beneficial for a farmer with more than one farm. There is no need for him to do an installation on every farm.
