May 04, 2016 (Kigali-Rwanda) - Energy Utility Corporation Limited (EUCL) is postponing planned up-grade of the prepaid system (Cash Power) until further notice.

The planned upgrade was scheduled to start with effect from 04th May 2016 to 18th May 2016 between 9:00pm to 8:00am each day. The purpose of which was to re-enforce the existing prepayment system to enable EUCL improve customer service and better system performance. Upgrading this prepayment system will allow old data be archived to decrease the number of transactions in the database thus increasing speed of access into the system.

The upgrade will also allow electricity purchase database create a disaster recovery plan in case of system failure. It will also enable EUCL to reduce the time of system repair and increase system availability.

History of this Prepayment System (Cash Power):

It was acquired in July 1995 by former ELECTROGAZ. The objective of acquiring this system was to introduce and expand the prepayment system across the country thus improve revenue collection and customer services.

In 1999, the first upgrade was done to make it Y2K compliant and opened the way for integrating it with all our prepayment meters from various suppliers. The utility continued to carry out a series of upgrades on this system to further improve its performance.

EUCL therefore informs the general public that this planned up-grade of the prepaid system (Cash Power) has been postponed until further notice.

This system upgrade has been postponed to enable EUCL to further explain to the general public the details of this upgrade and how it will affect the normal electricity purchasing schedules. EUCL shall inform the general public of dates and time required to complete this exercise.
