Lowri Beck Services

Electricity Prepayment Meters

  • If you think you have a faulty meter, first check our Prepayment Meter information pack, found here. There is a trouble shooting guide at the back, which could help you resolve your problem.
  • If your meter is faulty, Lowri Beck will visit and if needed, will replace the meter like for like.
  • If you are without supply, Lowri Beck will visit and top up your meter with £5. This is known as a wind on. 

Gas Prepayment Meters

  • If you have a fault, Lowri Beck will attend and reset the meter. They could also provide a list of resettable error codes before visiting.
  • If there is damage to the meter, or there is a non-resettable fault, Lowri Beck will exchange the meter like for like.
  • If you require credit due to a lost key/yet to receive key, Lowri Beck will attend and complete a wind on of £5.
  • If the meter data needs resetting, usually occurring in instances where a previous tenant has left a large debt on the meter and the new tenant is unable to top up, Lowri Beck will attend.

Additional Charges

If you would like to have a Prepayment Meter fitted, there will be a charge for doing so. For customers that are having difficulty paying for their energy, we recommend our Prepayment Meter tariff, as it is a great way to keep on top of your bills.

Please visit the Additional Charges section on our website for further information on Prepayment Meter installation costs.
