Prepaid meters can save you money November 4, 2015
There are many things that we cannot control about the electricity at the moment. This includes regularly being left in the dark without warning. Purchasing prepaid electricity can actually save you money on a monthly basis, which will hopefully ease the pain slightly in our current circumstances.
Buying electricity through a prepaid meter allows you to control how much you put into the meter on a monthly basis. You will be able to monitor how much electricity you actually use and what it is costing you. You will be able to see how much electricity you have left on the meter and how quickly these credits are being used up. This puts you in control of the amount you spend on a monthly basis. You can actually see how much power you use day tby day – allowing you to adjust your electrcity consumption accordingly.
Postpaid meters don’t allow you to modify you consumption prior to getting your bill. In postpaid billing you would often only be billed for your consumption one month prior – making switching off that bar heater or water boiler in time to avoid a massive or unaffordable bill impossible.
Experience shows that users on prepaid electrcity us between 10% and 30% less than people using postpaid. Good for your pocket and great for the environment.
