Prepayment Solutions (Pay As You Go)
For the Control and Avoidance of Debt
If you have difficulties with clients that struggle to pay their bills then we can supply intelligent pre-payment energy meters that provide real-time and historical information about consumption and accounting in monetary terms.
The heat meter is installed in the consumer premise with an inbuilt secure isolating valve. The consumer buys credit/heat in advance by paying at a vending office or purchasing online and their chosen amount is transferred to the meter through a special code. The amount in the meter is then deducted as per the usage and tariff charges. As the amount reaches a low balance an alarm is raised to the consumer via the in-home display, and when it reaches zero it automatically disconnects the supply. To reconnect, the consumer simply needs to buy more credit/heat.
The system is designed to cater for consumer convenience. It never disconnects the supply outside of agreed hours and it offers multiple vending options like recharging through a mobile app, online portal, bank card, cheque or standing order etc.
How It Works
Liberty Connect, a pre-payment solution for heat networks, and Pipit Display, an in-home device allowing tenant’s to see their balance and energy usage. Operated by Heatlink ‘Client Services’, the system allows tenants to pay only for the heating and hot water they use, rather than paying a set monthly charge based on the size of their flat.
Residents mostly use the smart meter to find out how much credit is left and to see how much heating and hot water they have used.

Liberty Connect 100 and Pipit Solution
“The main feature I use is checking how much credit I have and the usage history – checking my daily, weekly and monthly usage… the smart meter has been really helpful – you know how much you are spending and how much you are using. I wasn’t aware of how much energy I was using before, when you pay monthly you don’t think bout that kind of thing… it has also made me more aware of the environment and how much I use – how many baths and showers I have, that kind of thing. I top up online on my Kindle – I top up as I go along, which works well for me.”
