What Is A KPLC Prepaid Meter?

As electricity became a necessity, the Kenya Power and Lighting Company (KPLC), now Kenya Power, connected households to the grid and installed post-paid meters

Over the years, these meters proved inefficient. Not only did the company have to cater for postage costs to send monthly electricity bills to clients, but also clients failed to pay in the time leading to many power disconnections.

Kenya Power, therefore, introduced the prepaid power meters, where customers are required to purchase electricity tokens in the form of power units beforehand.

It allows you to monitor and manage your electricity usage, which you could also do using the Kenya Power Telegram Bot.
