There is no expiry period units purchased that have not been used. The Cashpower system gives you total control of your electricity consumption.
Where to get Cashpower
You can purchase Cashpower units from any Nawec branch office each day from 8:00 am to 8:00pm and at the Head Office from 8:00 am to 12 midight each day.
Your Cashpower number is a unique number and therefore, you must always provide the meter number to the Revenue Collector before you can purchase your electricity units. The token numbers on your receipts are the ones you enter into the keypad on the meter and the equivalent of the amount purchased in units will register. Always try to avoid making errors in entering the token numbers as your meter might be blocked after three errors. In situations like this, please contact Nawec’s Cashpower department for assistance.
Keep the receipts
Whenever you buy Cashpower, you receive a printout of the transaction. This can be kept as it contains vital information. They are particularly advantageous for business as they can be filed for future reference and accounting purposes.
Cashpower for all?
According to recent information from Nawec, a campaign is underway to change all conventional meters to prepaid ones. Though the initiative has been welcomed by the vast majority of the general public, its acceleration has been hindered by the cost of getting the new meters. However, there is good news around the corner as according to Nawec officials, they are currently looking into ways and means of making the meters even more affordable.
