EESL with its JV IntelliSmart is currently doing Implementation of Smart Metering Program to significantly improve the billing and collection efficiencies of Distribution Companies (DISCOMs). Smart Meters will be the foundation for smart grid programme which will be crucial to meet challenges of the newly evolving energy mix and the target of providing uninterrupted 24×7 power supply to every Indian.
Smart meters are connected through a web-based monitoring system which will help to reduce commercial losses of utilities, enhance revenues and serve as an important tool in power sector reforms. EESL business model to roll out smart meters is revamping the current manual system of revenue collection which leads to low billing and poor collection efficiencies.
EESL has signed MoUs/Agreement for smart meters with the states of Andhra Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, Bihar, NDMC-Delhi, and Telangana.
By EESL’s smart metering project, NDMC becomes the first utility to have all their consumers with smart meters without any upfront investment from NDMC.
As on date, EESL has installed over 35.75 lakh smart meters in Uttar Pradesh, Delhi, Haryana, Bihar, Rajasthan and Andaman under this programme. Apart from this M/S Intellismart has installed 3.03 Lac Smart Meters in the State of Assam.
