How to Borrow Electricity Units & check meter balance~ Naijatvnet

Stuffs do happen anytime unannounced. There are situations maybe over the weekend or in the night when your power airtime runs out and you do not have access to buy power airtime and you just know that you are in a big shit.  There must be a way out of this. The way out would be to make use of the prepaid meter loan facility by borrowing.

Regardless of whether you have a prepaid or a postpaid meter, there’s something for everyone.

Here are the ways you can borrow units for your meter during an emergency;

Using a Code to borrow Power

Did you know you could enter a code on your prepaid meter and get free five units? This  loan option is great when you just need something small and quick.

Simply key in #414# and and press ENTER or the Arrow button on your prepaid meter to borrow units.

The catch is that this code is only valid for prepaid meter users and can only be used once and the meter must have been activated for recharge.

What this means is that, after dialling #414# and you are given 5 units power you have to repay the borrowed five units on your next recharge to qualify for another loan or borrowing.
