Prepayment metering simply means PAY AS YOU GO in which
you pay for electricity before using it, and you are
fully in control of your electricity consumption.
Prepayment metering is a modern form of electricity
metering that is well suited to the lifestyle of most
people. The meter essentially consists of a software
controlled unit, with exceptional levels of accuracy.
The customer is in control of the electricity
consumption and has visible indication inside the
residence (or small business) of the actual consumption
and the number of units left inside the meter.
Meter reading errors, or those errors associated with
estimations of meter readings are something of the past,
as are any additional fees for disconnections or
reconnections due to late payment. Any customer facing
financial difficulty is able to manage electricity
consumption much more careful and may even, by choice
decide what to put on or put off in the house to
Prepayment electricity is neither more expensive nor
less expensive than any other form in which electricity
is supplied. The tariff rates remain exactly the same.
Your existing credit meter may be exchanged for a
prepayment meter for a preset fee.
