You need never again worry about your electricity bills!
solution to all your concerns is now available
to you. You will be able to offer your clients’ all the
comfort they ask for. You need never again worry about
your electricity bills – in fact, you will not mind at
all if your guests leave air-conditioning or heating units
on 24hrs a day during their stay! Impossible? No, this
is very possible... with a cheaply fitted electricity
card meter. A meter? Yes! Read on for more...
How does this work?
like a mobile phone, this meter will accept pre-paid cards,
which only cost you a few cents each, covering the actual
cost of the card. You however sell the cards to your guests
at the printed face value (EUR 10, EUR 20 or other values
by special order). They insert the card/s into the meter,
which will then supply them with a number of electrical
units (KwH), as per the adjustment you choose. As the
electricity gets consumed, your guests will eventually
need to purchase further cards from you to assure that
their supply is not cut off.
The cards can only be purchased from us, by you, it is not possible for your
guests to obtain cards directly from us or any other sources.
How is the meter installed?
The meter is
very easily installed in the apartment/house generally in one of three ways: as a sub-meter
for all the property's electricity consumption; as a meter on a separate
circuit, usually the circuit where air-conditioning and heating units are
installed; or as a meter for a single appliance such as an individual
air-conditioning unit, or maybe even a washing machine. The latter fitments
enable you to offer air-conditioning/washing machine as an option available
against separate payment. This is a very popular way of fitting the meter/s.
You will of course still receive Enemalta’s bills; this sub-meter does not
interfere in any way with Enemalta’s metering or billing. The difference now is
that you will have collected the money to pay your bills, in advance!
Not only, but you can adjust the rate per unit as per your requirements, such
that you would be “re-selling” the electricity at a reasonable rate above cost,
to cover the initial cost of the meter and the disposable cards, the wear and
tear of equipment such as air-conditioning units, and Enemalta’s service charge.
Thus over time, not only does the meter offer peace of mind, but it pays for
itself and all your running expenses! And if electricity rates increase, you can
re-set the rate immediately using the programming card. The very simple
to use meter also offers intelligent advanced features such as “emergency
credit” and “zeroing of credit”, all of which are fully explained in the meter’s
Some property owners still prefer to set an all-inclusive price for their accommodation,
yet still fit a meter, and supply guests with sufficient number of cards to
cover reasonable usage during the duration of their stay, any extra cards
required being charged for. Even if guests never exceed the limit and are not
charged any extra, the fact that they are made aware of their electricity
consumption, results in more careful usage of this resource - so you still
benefit greatly with reduced bills. This reduction has been reported by several
You are always onto a winner, whatever the option.
Peace of mind, more
control, no surprise bills, and a more transparent deal for your guests. More
predictable expenses also means that you can offer better calculated
accommodation rates, when necessary, which makes you more competitive. You will
know that the winter week bargain rate you are promoting will not need to take
into consideration possibly high heating costs, and your guests will know that
they only need to pay for the electricity they use. So it’s a great deal all
around – and now is the time to get a meter installed!
What does it cost?
Well we could say
nothing really... since this meter will pay for itself in no time at all... but
here are the figures:
The RFID Card Meter is a 21st Century upgrade of the immensely
popular CPM5188A ‘Electrocard’ meter which was designed in the
early 1990’s. The same manufacturer has now re-designed this very popular prepayment metering model into a more compact and modern design that makes use of contactless card technology.
189 ex VAT (e.g. if taken with deposit option)
Disposable Cards, any denomination
EUR 0.30 CENTS ex VAT (plus could benefit from a 10% discount)
Programming Card (only one needed)
Ranges between Eur 10 and Eur 35 ex VAT
own electrician can install the meter, it is very simple.
But we can quote your installation upon request.
Note about the previous model of meters (Cards Only):
We still support clients who purchased the older model CPM5188A i.e. we still stock the old style magnetic stripe prepaid cards and programming cards - should these be required.
