The prepaid metering system benefits the consumer by promoting 100% inclusivity, energy efficiency and the ability to budget monthly spends. On the side of the distribution utility, it promotes efficiency in credit and collection and investor assurance of return on investment.
One Renewable offers a subscriptions-based cloud-hosted Prepaid Metering Service that eliminates EC capital expenditure and the need for inhouse IT expertise to operate and maintain the system.
The meter is dual communication mode, GPRS (cellular) and RF technology with a data collector that can transmit data through internet over satellite (VSAT). It features off-site load sales channels for reloading and balance notification to subscriber paired mobile to enable subscriber to manage his usage.
The system has so far been successfully deployed in Mararison Island, Culasi, Antique and Caramoan Islands, Camarines Sur.
