Install a sub meter

Landlords may install as many electric sub meters per property as the main supply permits.
Electricians must comply with IET wiring codes. The prepayment sub meters are quick to install and easy to operate.

Installation Instructions

Using a sub meter

Once installed tenants top up their prepayment meters by purchasing Metro Codes vended by Metro Prepaid across thousands of stores in the UK.
Metro Prepaid accumulates these electricity (Metro Code) payments for any given month, and transfers these funds to the registered Landlord in the first week of the following month. The Landlord uses the funds to service the cost of the main supply (from its Energy Provider)

How to buy Metro codes

Tenants may top-up their prepayment sub meters by purchasing a power code. Power codes are vended by Metro Prepaid in thousands of high street stores in the UK via PaypPoint, as well as on-line, or via bank payment, cash deposit or credit card (Paypal). A power code is a 20-digit encrypted number that is punched into the meter by the tenant on returning home.

Our Customer Stories

  After setting up well over 1000 HMO rooms and many years as a property trainer, I know that the all-in model with free electricity that many HMO owners adopt is flawed. It drives the wrong behaviour, with tenants not switching off appliances using electric heaters whilst leaving the windows wide open or worse taking a long weekend in Greece and leaving the appliances running. Savvy landlords have been sub metering their tenants for years. READ MORE...

  We recently spoke regarding our EV installation at 51, Haven Road, Poole. Since we spoke I have had reason to speak to your help desk on several occasions seeking information.

It is a long time since I have received such excellent customer service.

Customer service like customer service should be

  I rang up a couple of weeks ago and spoke with Faseegah. Had some trouble with purchasing a voucher and she was fantastic. Extremely helpful and clear in resolving the issue at hand with minimum fuss. It is my first time using metro electric and I can safely say it’s been a breeze. Definitely recommend to anyone interested in using metro. Faseegah of course is a huge asset to your customer service team. Thank you for your prompt assistance.

Metro Prepaid Helped Me

  Joseph Rebutla, answered the 24 help line in less than ten seconds, was so calm thoughtful helpful and shows his training was well worth it, what a gentleman. Very efficiently with zero fuss Joseph guided me to full emergency electricity via the hitherto unseen unknown meter in my rented accommodation. Heroic and generous with his time, polite and supportive he has made me a fan of Metro Prepaid. As a modern solution to landlords seeking to isolate prepaid electricity supply to multiple rooms or offices within a property, this system is ace for tenants and landlords.

  Having just moved into a new rental and having no idea how to use the prepaid card, especially after I'd left it to the last minute before figuring out how to top up, Zainu has helped me out immensely.
