Electricity access and usage is growing in low- and middle-income countries, including South Africa. However, many households struggle to pay their monthly electricity bills, making it difficult for utilities to sustainably supply them with electricity. Can installing prepaid electricity meters improve revenue recovery?

The panel shared their experiences generating evidence and pathways through which their results informed education programs and policies around the globe, with support from USAID.
