The National Rural Electric Cooperative Association (NRECA) commissioned a study, "entitled Electricity Prepayment Program Update for the Cooperative Market, to focus more specifically on the growth and status of prepayment. Among other things, the findings of this update are that (1) the presence of an AMI solution is a core enabler of prepayment; (2) many if not most of the customer information systems (CIS) now support the offering of prepayment as a payment method; and (3) prepayment in general is growing at a significant pace, perhaps as much as 55% over the past 2 years, and possibly even higher."1 This was based on a study of three electric cooperatives in North Carolina, Colorado and Alaska.
The question is, do these findings apply to Texas? Considering that Texas is a retail choice market, where providers are in competition brought about by the deregulation of the electricity market, Texas may perhaps be considered as being in a more advanced state, in relation to these findings. For one, smart meter penetration in Texas is very high, as compared to other states. In 2013, Texas already had more than 75% smart meter penetration while many other states were still at only around 25%.2 In fact, for two years in a row now, Texas has ranked first in the Grid Modernization Index, partly owing to its smart meter programs and for pioneering smart grid initiatives.
Although smart prepaid electric service was first introduced in Texas only in 2011, the number of providers offering the service, and the number of consumers signing up for pay-as-you-go electricity has been increasing. This is because prepaid electricity service offers many advantages.
