Benefits of Prepaid Electric Meters

Landlords and Property Managers:
  • Ensure that tenants are paying for electricity before consuming it.
  • This ensures that they will not be lumped with large unpaid bills at the end of a lease.
  • Easily resolve disputes on the amount of electricity consumed.
  • If rent is unpaid the owner can use the sale of recharge vouchers as a bargaining tool and thus
    create an huge incentive for the tenant to pay on time. (see tips and tools for lease agreement)


  • Are able to monitor their consumption by checking the easy to read monitor and
    Adjusting their consumption accordingly.
  • Budget in advance so there are no surprise bills at the end of the month.
  • Can be sure that they are paying for the correct amount of electricity they are using.

Electricity charges will still be billed by your local supplier and we recommend that you
regularly read your “council meters” and submit your readings to ensure that your bills
are accurate
to current consumption. (see tips and tools)
