How to Upgrade Your Prepaid Meter

Please Note: Users who fail to update their meters before November 2024 won’t be able to recharge their prepaid meters.

NERC has issued a directive urging electricity consumers nationwide to update their prepaid meters.
For Ikeja Electric consumers, here is the step to upgrade the meter.
  • To upgrade your meter, you need a Key Change Token-KCT (a special ‘reset’ token) to be loaded on your meter.
  • To get this token, you will need to first link your NIN (National Identification Number) to your meter at
  • You will receive three (3) sets of 20-digit tokens the first time you vend after linking your NIN. If you didn’t not receive the token after linking your NIN, use this link to generate the code but ensure you recharge first.
  • Input the first set of 20-digit tokens (KCT 1); this will wipe off the old meter settings. Input the second set of 20-digit tokens (KCT 2), then upgrade your meter to the new STS platform. The last 20-digit tokens will load the purchased energy value into the meter
