@Laser4real indicated:

It's all over the place so please stop putting out questions like it's not. Even if you're not asked to pay, they'll tell you meters are out of stock and right in your face, someone will pay and will receive it.

@Abdul_Somed2 commented:

Hmmm... the last time I asked for the meter in the Northern Region, they said unless I pay GH¢2,500. Until now I never knew the meter is given for free. I was still gathering money to go and pay for it. Thank you for this revelation.
