The Media Center of the Council of Ministers and the Ministry of Electricity and Renewable Energy confirmed that it is not correct to deduct the remaining balance with prepaid electricity meters at the end of the month.
The ministry explained that the method of calculation in the pre-paid counter is done according to the price structure of the announced consumption segments, and has nothing to do with the timing of shipment, as the new balance that is charged is added to the remaining balance in the card until it is completely depleted according to the subscriber’s consumption, and no amounts are deducted from the meter at the end of the month Other than the amounts due according to consumption only.
Citizens can charge their electricity cards for prepaid meters from the electronic payment outlets spread across the country, or through applications on the mobile phone that supports the “NFC” feature.
Nearly 10 million prepaid electricity meters have been installed in various parts of the Republic, which contributed to the elimination of many problems facing the electricity sector and the citizen, most notably the problems of electricity bills, and helped the consumer bear the value of actual consumption only for his consumption Electricity, in addition to contributing to the rationalization of consumption, as pre-paid meters enable the consumer to know his balance, and thus he can reduce consumption.
We call on the various media outlets and social media users to investigate accuracy and objectivity in publishing news, and to communicate with the concerned authorities, to make sure before publishing information that is not based on any facts and leads to confusion in the public opinion.
