How should I calculate the tariff for my meter?

The tariff must be the same that you pay to your energy provider on your main meter.

You may adjust this to include :

  • a share the electricity used to supply of common areas
  • to incorporate a share of the Daily Standing charge for the property

Why is my tariff not the same as the energy provider tariff?

The tariff should be equal to the Landlord energy provider rate, however the tariff may be adjusted at the owners request to include:

  • Common area usage e.g. hallway lighting, shared kitchens
  • Fixed or standing charges (payable by the Landlord)

What happens when the tariff increases?

The Landlord should inform Metro Prepaid, so that we can updated it on your profile.

Keeping a record of energy provider meter numbers helps to identify the location of the secondary meter.

I’ve bought a new Metro Prepaid secondary meter. Can I register it to a different service provider?
