In the traditional method of tenant billing, someone must manually read the meter, generate the bill and collect the payment. Not only is this time consuming and labor intensive, it can also easily result in dispute between the landlord and the tenant. At the same time there is also the risk that the bill would not be paid.
With a prepaid metering in place, the job of the landlord is greatly simplified, as all manual meter reading, generating the bill and payment collection are all eliminated completely. There can be no dispute as everything is transparent, the tenant can see exactly how much energy they are consuming. The tenant can also budget their own energy expenditure accordingly. The landlord gets paid in advance and need not worry about not being paid.
This system is well suited for any rented space such dormitories, classrooms, apartments, and market stalls.
