With electricity being a “must-have” for all due to its associated benefits, purchasing a Yaka token for your prepaid meter at the best time means much more when compared to buying at any other time. Yes, from experience as an electricity user, I came to realize how the time you buy matters much.
If you’ve been wondering when is the best time to buy Yaka, this post just like this for other Umeme questions has got you covered. As we all know, what one takes to be a favorite may not be another’s favorite. This is because different people take different things differently, and so to what they love in life when it comes to using electricity.
During that time when I used to work from home full time, the best time then was all-time between 8 am to 10 pm. But when I changed from full-time tonight worker, Oh yes, the best time too changed since this time around, I need Yaka at night much more than during the day, at home.
On the other hand, at the office, the best time to buy Yaka is during working hours. This is because all we need electricity for happens during those times as opposed to the night hours since the office is closed.
As far as I know, you can buy Umeme Yaka token at any time you need since doing so has been becoming better day by day with a number of Channels including mobile money, POS agents, Banks, etc being channels where one stops and buys a token.
