Damaged Prepaid Meter. by Plomo: 6:57am On Aug 05, 2021
Hello house.

It rained heavily early this morning and when I woke up after, I discovered there was no power.
I looked outside and saw there was electricity in other houses except mine.

I know, I am sure I am not out of units yet.

And physically looking at my meter, there is no blinking light on.

How do I go about fixing or replacing my prepaid meter? I need it fixed asap but I am afraid the politics they play at IKEDC will drag and delay any fix for months while I’m in the dark.

Good morning. This has happened to my meter several times. Please don't assumed your meter has spoilt yet. The breaker must have done it's job in this case. Either the breaker has cut off the light or breeze must have removed one of the two wires that enter your meter from the pole. One of the two must have happened to your meter ... I knows water doesn't spoil meter . Check your meter breaker very well. You just have to switch the breaker up back . Thank me later

I agree with the person above.
Check if your wires are properly connected at the pole.
You can use a tester to check the entry point on the meter. Or better still, call an electrician.

It was the breaker like the poster above said. At least, next time, I’ll know what to do.

Thank you for helping out!
