Ted Blom Joins Urban Utilities
The department led by Ted Blom will focus on key points including:
With this strategic process, we aim to interact with all utility suppliers and stakeholders, focusing on the financial process between “Eskom, Rand Water” and their clients the Councils/Municipalities.
With 275 Councils/Municipalities in South Africa and 92% of them being in the “red” on the latest audit outcomes it’s clear that change needs to happen in the processes.
The Urban council management process aims to work with all Councils/Municipalities to allow integration of our model for sustainable financial resolutions in the billing process from Eskom/Water Supplier” that would allow for repayment strategies on all arrear accounts and accurate billing moving forward. This will assist Councils/Municipalities to have a streamlined re-payment strategy in place that would ultimately benefit the audit report for the new financial year.
Its common knowledge that all property owners, businesses and various stakeholders at one point in time will have some sort of dispute with the utility supplier (Council/Municipality), with no ideas of possible resolution that can be implemented, all this leads to pure frustration.
99% of these frustrations would be a result of negligence, incorrect billing (over billing or estimations) and has a direct impact on the property owners account with the supplier.
With the Urban Utilities account management process we can assist the property owner “Residential & Commercial” to resolve the dispute in a manner that would benefit the property owner and the supplier.
The dispute management process will allow for account resolution and settlement with an accurate billing process moving forward as part of the strategy, allowing the end user to be assured of correct billing form the supplier moving forward.
The focus of renewable energy within South Africa has come a long way over the past number of years and with the latest news from the Energy Minister that the grid would be open its evidence that the renewable energy sector has a huge role to play.

Let us assist you with your billing disputesDispute management (Residential & Commercial)
The Urban billing dispute management strategy allows us to handle account billing disputes that clients may have between themselves (property account owners) and the supplier (Council/Municipalities).
No dispute is too small or too large as we focus on the dispute itself, enabling us to review and implement a specific strategy towards the unique dispute. This combined with the dispute management process will allow us to follow the accounting trail on all utility consumptions and provide a resolution on the dispute that would be a working model between the property account owner and the utility supplier to have the account settled and brought up to date.
