Hi xxx

Hope you are well!
Please advise whether owners are permitted to install pre-paid meters at Claptons Beach and Villa Martinique. I have had queries relating to this.
I await your advises.
Thank you

Good afternoon xxxxx,
Please accept my apology for the way in which we handled your enquiry. Yes, it's still the policy of the Marina not to allow pre-paid meters and the main reason is us being the bulk receiver and supplier. Secondly you must bear in mind that the pre-paid owner will be still liable to the Marina for the " basic fee". I will discuss your request at our next Board meeting on the 22/02/2010 and will revert back to you with the status quo.

Good day xxxxx,
Your request were discussed at yesterday's Board meeting and the info
that we have already given to you is correct.
Being a bulk receiver and supplier we are being debited for the total
usage .The pre-paid user would buy his electricity coupon from Kouga but
using the power supply of the Marina.In short we are still paying for
his electricity usage but not getting any payment from his side.
