  1. Prepaid Electricity Presentation By Ariel dela Cruz President/CEO

  2. Prepaid Success Drivers • Sachets: small denominations • Pervasive Point of Sales (aka sari-sari stores) • Healthy ecosystem (store owners must make reasonable profits) • Familiar SMS reloading process • Low Cost of CPE

  3. Types of Prepaid Retail Electricity Systems • Token Based • Customers buy from a vending station and are given a numeric token to be keyed into the meter • Reloadable Cards • Customers buy from a vending station using reloadable cards which are either inserted into the meter or swiped near the meter • Online • Customers buy from retailers scratch cards or e-loads which can reload the system thru text similar to electronic loads of the telcos

  4. Major ERC requirements for Prepaid Electricity Systems • Mandates specific Information on the meter • Loading in reasonably small increments • Load available 24 hours • DU advances the cost of the meter. Meter Cost recovery mechanism to be approved by ERC • Prepaid system MUST implement lifeline rates. • 2 years of record keeping

  5. Meter Display Requirements • Current Load Balance • Time and date • Previous 30 day KWHR consumption • The number of days into the current 30 day period • Current consumption into the period • Low Load warning

  6. Logical Choice • Online • Connectivity Challenges: • Circuit Switched Data (sunset protocol) • GPRS/EDGE/3G (Shared Pipes, not fully provisioned in Provinces) • No SLA • Wireless Broadband (not fully provisioned) • Wireless ATM connectivity shows us the way: • Symstream Data over GSM Voice Channel • Best in Class remote device management

  7. Prepaid/postpaid/TOU AMR Capable meter

  8. System Architecture

  9. Near Real Time Online System (30 mins. Update) • Loading via SMS • Makes use of existing Telco load retailer network • Balance inquiry via SMS • Calculation of remaining load is at the back end server • Allows monthly rate changes • Accommodates lifeline rate calculations • Can be used as Postpaid Meter read via AMR

  10. TOU capable • Tamper alarms • Optional support for Google PowerMeter • Symstream GSM technology for highest SLA communications connectivity

  11. Advantages vs. Competition • Customized to ERC requirements • Uses Symstream GSM connectivity for highest reliability & security in wireless data communications • Uses SMS top-up infrastructure • Use of concentrators brings the cost of wireless airtime to a minimum
