CIM Issues #6367
While much of the support in Part 9 is for tokenized funds to represent prepaid metering, another approach used by some vendors is to represent an energy measurement as being prepaid. (For example, some quantity of kWh may be written to the meter and credited to the customer's account, and when that amount of kWh is depleted, the RCD relay opens.) Can we expand prepaid metering to cover more than tokenized funds?
Add a new attribute in the "macroPeriod" to say that this measurement is "prepay" -- implying that the measurement is before the fact not after the fact. The "prepay" label can be applied if kWh is specified, or if currency is specified.
