The Revenue Protection Unit in the City of Cape Town’s Electricity Services Department has cracked the R100 million mark in revenue recovery over a 12-month period.

The city credits help from residents reporting electricity theft.

The City’s Mayoral Committee for Utility Services, Councilor Ernest Sonnenberg said he is impressed by this achievement on Thursday.

“Cases of tampering have been identified across all income brackets. From the poorer areas to the leafy suburbs. This practice is not limited to domestic use only.” Sonneberg said.

“Some businesses have been revealed as culprits too. Although they make up only 1%of the cases investigated, the rand value of this can be substantial.” Sonnenberg added.
