Bluesky and EPC have partnered together to launch an additional service on Bluesky’s M-Tala platform, which aims to provide convenience at fingertips to every Samoan in purchasing their Prepaid Power (Cashpower). This is secure and provides prepaid power voucher via SMS on real time basis from anywhere in Samoa– this is another big Bluesky initiative to improve the life of Samoans.
The partnership provides an alternative option to the EPC customers to purchase prepaid power. This will help all, especially rural customers.
Now with Bluesky’s M-Tala (Samoa’s first e-mobile wallet) Bluesky customers can top up/buy their prepaid power balances at any time using their handsets. The payment is deducted directly from their M-Tala airtime balance. Bluesky customers simply need to follow three (3) easy steps:
- Customer dials *175# from their Bluesky Mobile Phone to access the M-Tala USSD Menu. Customer then selects Option 2 for payment & utilities, to access EPC Prepaid Power service
- Customer enters their EPC Meter Number, followed by their required amount.
- Customer then receives a voucher via SMS.
Bluesky’s postpaid capped customers can also take advantage of this new M-Tala Service. Each prepaid power transaction is free to the customer.
“Bluesky have all this modern technology and today we’re proud to announce our partnership with EPC to bring forth a useful solution which enables a more convenient lifestyle for our customers. Nowadays, everything is required in an instant and with this newly launched service; everyone can now do this from the comfort of their homes/offices or even when one is sitting at hotel and partying with friends. Hence all barriers have been broken and complete control provided to the customers” Says CEO Satish Sharma.
EPC’s General Manager Lupematasila Togia Tologata Tile Lei’a Tuimalealiifano was present stating their Company’s mission: “Our mission is to provide and maintain quality electricity services through innovative, sustainable and environmentally sound practices in developing renewable energy sources, generation and distribution infrastructure network, and support the development of Samoa through innovative products to which we are doing so via our stakeholders and new partnership with Bluesky Samoa bringing forth another platform for easy prepaid power purchase for our nation.”
