THE COST

CityPress - - Business -

Inus Dreck­meyr’s Net­shield SA uses a ba­sic for­mula when ad­vis­ing cus­tomers on the costs of pro­duc­ing 95% of a house­hold or busi­ness’ energy needs. He de­scribes it as a use­ful tool to see how much your house­hold

has to pay to rid it­self of Eskom. The first step is to look at your monthly

energy bill. Then mul­ti­ply the monthly amount by 12 and then seven years, adding

15% in­ter­est on to ev­ery year.

For a R400 monthly bill, it will cost you R53 000 to make your house self-suf­fi­cient. For an R800 bill, you will need R106 000. A R1 000 bill will cost you R132 000 and a

R2 000 bill will cost R266 000
