If you’re searching for a way to make your prepaid meter read slowly, then you’ve come to the right blog.
I mean, who wouldn’t love their Meters to read slowly?
I have tried and tested this Prepaid Meter trick and it is proven to always work, no matter the model of Prepaid Meter you are using. Let’s get down to it, shall we?
How to make your prepaid meter read slowly.
#1. Power conservation
We have the habit of leaving all our appliances switched on even when we are not using them. Running bulbs in the daytime is also one of these bad habits (I’m guilty of this one).
If we can develop the habit of switching off all bulbs and appliances once the lights go out and turning off all appliances until they are necessary, i believe your Metre will last longer.
#2. Get yourself seen on search engines
Another Underrated method is to get your prepaid meter company seen on Google Search when people search for you. This is only possible if you use an SEO company in Lagos or Nigeria that is Google-Certified.
#3. Buy energy efficient appliances.
Just like how one car is more fuel efficient than the next, some electronic appliances are made particularly with low energy consumption. Seek out these ones and make a deliberate effort to purchase these type.
#4. Use Solar water Heaters instead.
Solar water Heaters have been proven to turn 80% of radiation into heat so that once installed, you get to use free energy to cook your bathing water.
#5. Throw your LCD Television away.
You heard me right. If you want your Meter to read slowly, truth unknown to most is that LCD TVs consume 3X the energy of LED TVs.
In fact, you can even lower the electricity consumption of the LED TV using its built in ecological friendly mode. Now you know. Fling that LCD far far away.
#6. LED bulbs are lit!
As with LED TVs, LED bulbs also consume far less electricity. So if you’re one of those people who still use those poverty looking yellow light bulbs that not only consume ridiculous energy, it’s time for an upgrade.
It doesn’t matter if you don’t own a Tiny home (which are made to be energy efficient), you can still make your meter read slowly.
#7. Don’t be dirty, clean your Air-conditioning vents.
Fun fact: Air conditioners actually overwork and use up more power when the vents are dirty.
So if you have an A/C unit at home, please I’m begging you (I’m literally on my knees begging you) to clean those vents at least once a month.
Air conditioners normally consume electricity, talk more of when they’re forced to work overtime.
Can you bypass prepaid Metre?
Just in case you haven’t yet noticed, you really can’t.
And here’s some food for thought: In 2017, Punch News reported that the Electricity Regulatory Commission with backing of the Federal Government, assured that anybody caught attempting to bypass their Prepaid Metres will be forced to pay the sum of $700 as fine.
But you can always go and try your luck and see.
