In order to become a bulk pre-paid electricity vendor you have to approach your local supply authority.
In highly populated areas such as major cities pre-paid bulk electricity is only sold through large organisations such as large supermarket groups, services stations and certain general dealers. However, it is possible to sell bulk pre-paid electricity in certain areas.
Every Eskom area or local supplier such as Johannesburg’s City Power decides for themselves where and how many agents can be accommodated to sell electricity on Eskom’s behalf. Every individual request must be investigated to decide whether it will be financially viable.
It is best to visit your local power supplier and discuss the matter with them.
