The Prepaid Meter:

Tokens and the Unipin

T he prepaid meter is designed in such a way, that when the tokens have run out on the meter unit, the electricity will cut off until such time as the meter has been recharged with a 20 digit token purchased from your nearest outlet point. It is easy to use and can be purchased almost everywhere. There are outlet points in various shopping centres around RSA. Shops that are UNIPIN supported would be available to you to make your purchase. Please report any outlet point that is carrying the UNIPIN logo and does not have the facility to offer you prepaid electricity. If you choose to go to any outlet of the branded names on this list below, ask if they are UNIPIN software supported.
Each occupant is issued with a comprehensive information sheet specific to the area where the meter was installed. This ensures that the landlord is never approached by the tenant for electricity payments. They will explain the steps to follow to get started using prepaid electricity to our clients. A User Manual will be supplied on the day of the installation. We trust that we can be of great service to you in the near future.

1How does the Prepaid work?
When a consumer purchased a voucher and requests a token he has to provide his meter number. A request is sent to us and we send the token back for the requested amount. The money is paid into our account, which we -in turn- pay to the landlord, body corporate trust account or, (who ever pays the municipality). The consumer takes his token and punches it into the meter. The meter is now updated with a fixed amount of electricity to be released until it runs out with which the meter will then disconnect the electricity supply and the consumer then has to buy another token.
