What is Prepaid Metering?
Prepaid metering is prepaid electric service. It puts you in the driver’s seat for purchasing electricity. It’s like filling your car or truck with gasoline. You monitor the fuel level and decide when you should re-fill. Adding money to your account allows you to “refuel”. You simply pay for your electricity before it is used.
How does Prepaid Metering work?
- Purchase electricity when it is convenient for you – anytime, anywhere.
- Your meter is read (or estimated) daily and the previous day’s usage is deducted from your available balance.
- Low balance notifications are sent automatically through email and/or text message. Email accounts are mandatory to participate.
- Prepaid Metering accounts still receive a monthly billing statement from Taylor Electric.
- If your balance reaches zero, power is automatically disconnected until the account has at least a $30 credit. Weather conditions will not postpone disconnection of service. Taylor Electric shall be held harmless from any damages due to loss of energy service, or during the reconnection of service, as a result of participating in the Pre-pay program.
