I recently moved and switched electric companies. The company that I have now offered prepaid electric service with no deposit, so I took it. I thought I would hate it, but I actually really like it. Basically, I add a bit of money to my electric bill every time that I get paid. Then, I get daily text message alerts telling me how much electricity I used the day before and how much is left on my account. I think it is actually a really good way to cut back on my electric bill because I notice right away when my usage is higher than usual. Does anyone else have prepaid metering? Do you like the idea, or no?
