The cost for prepaid conversion is R600-00 which includes a once off non refundable payment for the keypad and a R100-00 electricity voucher.

The person who made the payment takes ownership of the keypad (CIU).

The prepaid meter installed in the meter kiosk is and will remain the property of Impact Meters.

Original applications have to be handed in at any of our offices with supporting documentation or emailed to application@amps.co.za

New accounts. Prepaid conversion will be done within 3-6 weeks after the application and payment has been received subject to availability. Customers that still have old mechanical or electronic meters must open a conventional account until such time a new smart meter is installed. We will require a deposit of R750.00 which will be refunded back to the client after installation of the new meter and the account has been finalised.

Existing accounts. A new account will be opened for clients converting to prepaid meters. The existing accounts’ deposit will be credited and refunded. Please supply us with certified banking details

Existing smart meter accounts. Buildings that already have smart meters installed will not take 3-6 weeks to convert to a prepaid meter. This is done as soon as the customer pays the R600.00 and necessary prepaid document has been completed and captured.

In all instances where Impact Meter Services manages water at the complex, a deposit of R750.00 is required. A separate monthly account will be sent for the water and sanitation usage where applicable.
