Umeme will soon roll out a pre-paid meter service that will require clients to pay for electricity they need as opposed to the current system where by clients are billed after consumption.
This will save UMEME on the costs of delivering electricity bills, running after defaulters though the same move is looked at as a problem to institutions like hospitals. In a recent interview with the Electricity Regulatory Authority (ERA) Chief Executive Officer, Dr.Frank Sebowa, he said that Traffic lights, Hospitals and street lights would not be on this type of service.
The service will be convenient for domestic users as noted by the Energy State Minister D'Janga. He also added that the prepaid meter system has been piloted in some districts in Western Uganda like Kanungu.
