The Ministry of Electricity has provided several facilitations for citizens willing to switch to pre-paid meters through installments and instant installation.
This is part of a plan to substitute all traditional meters across Egypt with prepaid ones within 5 years.
Minister of Military Production Mohamed el-Assar announced locally manufacturing pre-paid meters and converting old ones to smart meters in Egypt.
The proliferation of digital technologies in Egypt’s electricity system comes within the framework of the government’s goal to harness the power of the digital economy and transition to cashless transactions.
The total number of pre-paid meters installed amounts to 9.5 million
