Install a sub meter

Landlords use their own appointed electrician to install the electric sub meters.
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.

Savvy landlords have been sub metering their tenants for years. READ MORE...
