Meet Your PrepayPower App Savings Feature

We always listen to feedback and suggestions from our customers.

So, when they asked for a way to save for their energy usage, we created the PrepayPower app Savings feature


What is the PrepayPower App Savings feature?  

The Savings feature lets our SmartPay+ prepay electricity customers set something aside for top-ups.

It's ideal for when:

  • Your energy usage increases during winter

  • The household budget gets stretched (Christmas, back to school or family events)

  • You need to top up your electricity account on a rainy day

Keep reading to learn how to build, use and track your savings from the PrepayPower app.


Start an Automatic Savings Routine

Sometimes, remembering to save is half the battle – but not anymore. You can start an automatic weekly Savings Routine and let your app do the rest.

Just pick a day and amount that works for you and watch your nest egg grow.

  • Saving Stat: 80% of PrepayPower savers prefer the weekly Savings Routine.

  • Flexible: You’re able to change or disable your routine at any time.

Make Once-Off Savings

You can also make Once-Off Savings whenever you want.

So, if you have enough to spare at the end of the week or just got paid, add it to your Savings in seconds.

Save Smarter with the Monthly Forecast

Saving can be difficult without a specific goal. Fortunately, the Monthly Forecast lets you see your expected total electricity costs from the 1st of the month. So you'll always have an amount to save towards.


How to Use Your Savings for Top-Ups

You’re free to dip into your Savings anytime you need to.

Starting from €1, you can top up your electricity balance from your Savings with three taps of the PrepayPower app.

This will be especially helpful during the winter months.  

Because when the temperature drops and daylight is in short supply, we need more energy to heat and light our homes.
