As per reports, the cost of prepaid meters is expected to rise soon, prompting Meter Asset Providers to halt the sale of new meters as they await NERC’s approval for revised prices.

This development has resulted in a temporary freeze on processing new meter applications until the anticipated price changes are officially sanctioned.

Sources reveal that meter manufacturers, grappling with foreign exchange (FX) issues, have suspended sending invoices until a comprehensive review of meter prices is executed. The ongoing challenges in the currency exchange arena have necessitated a reevaluation of pricing structures to ensure the viability of the prepaid meter ecosystem.
