Landlords have a number of options when it comes to deciding how energy should be paid for. We don’t believe it should cost thousands or require waiting months to get a grid supply connection. A better way is to use secondary meters, specifically smart prepayment sub-meters.
The property owner only needs to purchase prepayment meters and arrange for an electrician to install. The owner carries on paying the quarterly bill to the energy supplier but recovers this cost from the smart prepayment meters.
This can all be done without having to engage with tenants, or visit meters to empty coins as the Topupmeters system allows for convenient and easy online payments.
Traditionally would be coin operated or require a token of some sort to be swiped at the meter. The occupant would have to find coins or visit a local newsagents during opening hours to exchange cash for a topup card. Thankfully there is an easier way using the Topupmeters system.
Now thanks to the latest generation of metering technology energy is purchased online using a credit or debit card. Credit is instantly sent to the meter over the mobile phone network using a network roaming SIM card integrated to the meter. Tenant’s have all the convenience and transparency of prepayment without the hassel of regular bills or direct debits.
