    NEW HORIZONS

    Temperature rising

    CHEVON BOOYSEN

    @ChevonBooysen

    N

    ew Horizons residents will have to

    make do without the promised solar

    water rebate programme.

    This comes after Eskom was requested

    to withdraw the rebate programme where

    Breaking New Ground (BNG) homeowners

    received subsidies for their geysers.

    According to a statement fromEskom, the

    management and implementation of the pro-

    grammewill behandedover theDepartment

    of Energy (DoE).

    The handover has resulted in conflict and

    confusion between BNG homeowners and

    Gap house owners. The latter have received

    solar geysers.

    But BNG homeowner Eileen Green says it

    is unfair that they donot have geysers, but

    other residents in the area already have

    them installed.

    What makes us different from other

    homeowners if we cant get the same facili-

    ties as they do? A geyser might be a luxury

    butwhy only supply it to somewhen the rest

    are overlooked? Green asks.

    Green says she moved into her home less

    than a year ago.

    When Imoved inwe did not have the gey-

    sers installed, but were told we would get it.

    This has not yet materialised and now I un-

    derstandwemight not even get it, she says.

    Gap house owner Richard Petersen, how-

    ever, says they are paying for their own gey-

    ser.

    We are not being subsidised for our gey-

    ser at all. This is being paid out of our own

    pocketswhenwepay for ourbond,Petersen

    says.

    Ward councillor Shaun August confirms

    he received notification that the programme

    which was administered through Eskom,

    has been stopped due to the current situa-

    tion at Eskom.

    It is important to note that thiswas never

    aCity ofCapeTowncontract andwas admin-

    istered through Eskom. It has caused a lot

    of confusion for residents in the area, he

    says.

    August confirms residents who live in

    Gap housing are responsible for financing

    for their own geysers.

    Gaphouse residents pay for their geysers

    due to integration through their bond pay-

    ments. Their bond payments cover the costs

    for the geyser installation aswell, he points

    out.

    August says confusion arises when gap

    house owners live opposite or close to BNG

    homeowners.

    You will get a situation where a resident

    will see their neighbour has a geyser in-

    stalled, but they dont have it at their own

    homes. Then conflict arises and they want

    to know why they do not have it. But it is

    important that residents know that BNG

    houses andGap houses receive geysers from

    two different bodies, August explains.

    City Mayoral Committee Member for Hu-

    man Settlements, Benedicta van Minnen,

    says that the handover from Eskom to the

    DoEwill have no impact on service delivery.

    The City can confirm that Eskoms with-

    drawal has no impact on service delivery as

    housing projects do not ordinarily receive

    geysers because it does not form part of the

    housing subsidy, says Van Minnen.

    She adds the City cannot confirm speci-

    fics of an alternative plan.

    However, BNG homeowners may have

    geysers installed at their homes, Van Min-

    nen says.

    Homeowners are provided with the nec-

    essary plumbing pipework for these geysers

    so that if they are able to purchase geysers

    at a later stage they may do so, she says.

    VanMinnen further explains that benefi-

    ciaries of this project have not received gey-

    sers through the project.

    However, there are beneficiaries who

    have installed their own geysers and have

    used the pipework available tomake this in-

    stallation easy.

    Van Minnen confirms that the New Hori-

    zons housing project has about 2 024 BNG

    units, 740 Gap units and 260 market units.

    This month authorities and organisa-

    a light on the plight of children and adults

    with intellectual disabilities (ID) and the

    challenges faced when accessing post-
