Geyser control unit is installed in the following areas of Bloemfontein and Southern Free State.
Centlec Control Centre are able to continuously measure the demand for electrical power throughout its area of supply. At peak demand times, computer-based load management systems broadcast control signals to receiver control units that are installed at the consumer's premises. These control units are able to interrupt the electricity supply to the geyser, so providing a mechanism to centrally control a substantial portion of the electrical load and reduce the demand for power when necessary, to avoid early stages of load shedding and power failures in your area.
Geyser control units are in use in all areas which get supplied by Centlec and has been in operation in some areas since the early 1970.
The mentioned areas have now been fitted with the necessary equipment at the main substation and therefore we now need to install the geyser control units into the homes.
