How to Check Your Prepaid Meter Balance

How to Jun 14, 2023

Have you ever been in a situation where your units got exhausted before you even noticed they were low? Or have you ever tried to check your meter balance but never really figured out how to go about it? You don’t have to ever be in that situation again because we have got you covered.

In this post, you’ll learn two different ways to check your meter balance. Stay with me and learn how to go about it.

How to Check Your Prepaid Meter Balance

Method 1
The most popular way to check your meter balance is by going to the meter box itself. On most meters, your available units will be displayed on the screen. When units are low, there’ll be a blinking red light or a beeping sound when they're almost exhausted. All of this is to alert you to top-up.

If your meter doesn’t display this, simply try out the second method below.

Method 2
Not every meter displays the balance on its screen. Sometimes you might not be able to reach it as well.
If you can access your meter keypad, type in “009” (Mojec meter) and press the 'enter' button to check your meter balance. It’ll be displayed on your screen.

Extra Tip
Checking your meter balance is a way to know when you’re running out of units. However, you don’t have to wait until the last minute to take action.

With the BuyPower reminder feature, you can set a reminder to pay your electricity bills online at a convenient date and time.

This way, you know when you need to buy units and never have to hear that beeping noise.

To use the BuyPower reminder feature, simply follow these easy steps below

1. Download and log into the BuyPower Mobile App

2. Tap on the three-dash icon, at the top left of your screen

3. On the drop-down, select ‘Reminders’

4. Tap on ‘Update Alarm’ and choose your preferred date

5. Click on “ok”
