Prepay electric meter, 1907
Purchase a reproduction of this item on VintageMaineImages.com.
Usually, an electric meter is read and then the customer is billed for the electricity used.
In 1899, using the model of prepaid gas metering, General Electric adapted a Thomson Recording Wattmeter with an external collection device; the customer paid in advance.
Many manufactures followed with models of their own.
