Ways to Save

PrePayPower’s Control system is really smart, it brings complete transparency to your electricity costs and puts you in total control allowing you to save on the electricity you use!

Our Smart PrePay System displays your credit balance in real-time and lets you monitor and control your usage at the touch of a button. It’s very handy because it allows you to see which appliances are costing you the most money, not just during the winter, but right throughout the year!

Your Budget Controller will let you see how much energy you’ve used in the last day, week or month, or even show you how much electricity an appliance uses! 

How to Save:

Button 2

You can use button 2 to monitor your daily usage:

At the end of a day press 2 and you'll see the amount of energy you have used that day. Follow our energy saving tips on the next day to reduce your energy usage. At the end of day 2, press 2 again to check how much electricity you've used.

Comparing these two days allows you to see how easy it is to save!

Button 6

You can use button 6 to check how much energy an appliance uses, here’s how:

Simply press 6 once before you use an appliance, such as a tumble dryer. The figure shown* is how much energy is currently being used in your household.

When the appliance is in use, press 6 again for the updated energy amount. The difference in these 2 figures is the amount of energy the appliance uses.

Top Tip

The Electricity you use is measured in units and will appear as kWh on your Budget Controller.
