KPLC – How To Activate Kenya Power Prepaid Meter


KPLC – How To Activate Kenya Power Prepaid Meter: As an electricity utility company, Kenya Power is responsible for the transmission, distribution, and retailing of electricity to more than 6.2 million consumers across the region. In 2009, Kenya Power launched prepaid digital meters as a pilot and then later rolled out, now enabling customers to use the units they paid for as the payment form by buying a recharge card consisting of a 20-digit number similar to a scratch card for cell phone airtime, then entering the number on the meter. The recharge is instant and you do not need to think about the late payment and reconnection fees that are part of the postpaid agreement and can be charged at your convenience. When the units go below 20, an alarm will warn you to encourage you to top up. It was designed to save fuel, encourage use and payment of utility bills. This was a landmark since, in addition to the inconvenience of the power disconnections that customers encountered, the company no longer incurred postage costs for shipping bills.

A prepaid power meter is a meter with a customer interface unit that has a cell phone-like screen that allows customers to control their power usage in the same way as mobile phone credit units are handled. The payment structure is based every month, where the monthly fixed fee of Sh 120 is subtracted at the first end of the month. On top of the fixed charge, the first 50 units cost the user Ksh 2 per unit. Any unit consumed above 50 but below 1500, however, is billed at Ksh 8.10 per unit and Ksh 18.57 per unit above that.
