Prepaid meter pilot begins in India

The Times of India reported that the Maharashtra State Electricity Distribution Company Ltd. installed 30 prepaid electricity meters at commercial establishments in Lonavla, a city in the Pune district of the Maharashtra province of India. The meters can be recharged over the Internet, as well as via "coupons" in the form of prepaid cards inserted into the meters.

The Maharashtra Electricity Regulatory Commission issued a permit to the MSEDCL to install 25,000 prepaid meters in vacation homes and at commercial establishments in major cities and tourist destinations across India, according to The Times of India.

According to the report, consumers who opt for prepaid meters in their homes can buy units of power by making advance payments; once the units are exhausted, consumers can buy recharge coupon prepaid cards from designated MSEDCL centers.
