3 Things You Didn’t Know About Prepaid Meters

Prepaid Meters are the in-thing for anyone leasing an apartment or renting space right now. It affords the opportunity to be able to monitor your electricity usage and avoid paying when there is no power. Prepaid Meters, like the name implies, are loaded with units before you begin to use them. Pretty much like the airtime recharge system.

Here are three things you probably didn’t know about Prepaid Meters

1. Free Units Are Not Free.

Nothing is free even in Freetown, and this is Nigeria. When you newly acquire a prepaid meter, you will be told as an incentive that your meter comes with free units for you to use at first. When the units are depleted, you can now begin to pay. This is not entirely true. Yes, the meter comes loaded with units, but, they are not free. You realise this when you want to purchase units and are told that there is a debt on your meter. Some of us learnt the hard way, it’s better you are prepared in advance. So, when you get your meter, use the units that come with in with the knowledge that you will pay for it, eventually. It isn’t free.

2. You Can Calculate and Monitor Your Units

One of the major advantages of the Prepaid Meter is that you can track your power consumption. You don’t have to wait till your bill arrives. If you want to check your prepaid balance or know the amount of total credit used, press 07 on your prepaid keypad and hit the blue button. Your available balance will be displayed on the screen in this format (150.15). This usually works for most prepaid meters.

Remember when you would stand outside begging NEPA officials not to disconnect you while someone ran to the nearest NEPA office to help you pay your bill? Those are stories now.
