Why Apply For A Prepaid Meter?

The benefits of using an electronic prepaid meter greatly outweigh the inconveniences, if any. The importance of using a prepaid meter is that it gives you complete control over the amount of electricity consumed. No billings predicted. You only pay for the value of the electrical equipment you wish to use.

When you are not in service, you can always decide to turn off high-power consuming devices, or even buy the amount of electrical units that you think would appropriate for you at a certain time. Some people are buying as many units as they can even last up to six months!

The good thing about this is nobody can bring electricity bills to your doorway or disconnect your electric cables from the power source just because you didn’t pay an electric bill.

Since its establishment in 2013, the Ibadan Electricity Distribution Company (IBEDC) has been the major supplier of electricity to the state of Oyo, Ogun State, Osun State, and Kwara.

What is CAPMI all about?

CAPMI is an acronym that stands for Credited Advance Payment for Metering Implementation. It is a program built by NERC to ensure that customers get shipped and installed their prepaid meters within 45 days. The system also ensures the meter’s cost will be refunded in the form of credit units over a period not exceeding 36 months.

The IBEDC uses the CAPMI program, a special metering acquisition system developed by the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC) to provide prepaid meters within 45 days to those applying for them under IBEDC.
