The “eat all you can” model of bundling electricity costs in with the rental is imperfect, it effectively penalizes those tenants that conserve electricity - whilst others enjoy a free ride. Electric sub-meters allow tenants to manage their costs and choose when to top up in increments that suit their budget.
Installing electric sub-meters typically halves electricity bills as tenants as they are aware of what they use and can control it. No unexpected large bills.
Metro Prepaid meters remove the overhead and time associated with supplying cards and managing petty cash, removing the need to check for knock-off cards, or read check-meters.
As well as no petty cash to reconcile, Metro Prepaid delivers comprehensive reports which simplify bank reconciliations.
