Pre-Paid Electricity

PREPAID ELECTRICITY
NO DEPOSITS
NO LATE FEES
NO PENALTIES
NO DUE DATES

Pre-Paid Electricity is as simple as it sounds! It is like putting gas into a car.
Customers pay for electricity before it is used, then use the electricity until the credit is depleted.
Pre-Paid Electricity takes a meter reading at midnight each day, calculates the amount of electricity used, and deducts it from the credit balance. The credit balance is updated around 9AM each day.
