The utility supplier (Eskom or the municipality) has different tariff structures. These tariffs are based on different cost components based on a period (e.g. days), or consumption as measured in kWh, or maximum demand as measured in kVA. By selecting the most appropriate tariff structure for his needs, the farmer can manage the energy use and time periods and thereby reduce the total cost paid for the electricity per kWh used.
