A prepaid meter is an electricity meter that makes room for customers to pay for their electricity usage in advance. The meter works by allowing customers to load credit onto their meter, which is then used to power their home’s electrical appliances. You must be wondering how it works, here’s how:

1. Installation:

This can be done usually by their electricity provider.

2. Initial credit:

After installation, the customer is expected to load credit onto the meter with a token from their electricity provider or via an online payment platform.

3. Electricity usage:

Step 2 allows the customer to use electricity from the  meter as normal, with the meter recording the amount of energy used.

4. Debiting credit:

The prepaid meter automatically debits the customer’s credit balance based on their electricity usage.

5. Low balance notifications:

The prepaid meter will usually provide a notification to the customer to top up their credit wthe credit balance reaches a certain low level

6. Top-up options:

The customer can then top up their credit using various methods, an online payment system, or visiting a local shop that offers top-up services.

7. Disconnection:

The prepaid meter will usually disconnect the electricity supply If the credit balance runs out completely
