EESL successfully installs and operationalises over 5 lakh smart meters across India PSU NEWS

 

KOLKATA: Energy Efficiency Services Ltd (EESL) has successfully installed over 5 lakh smart meters in Uttar Pradesh, Delhi, Haryana, Bihar and Andhra Pradesh, under Smart Meter National Programme (SMNP). The meters will enhance consumer convenience and rationalise power consumption. 
 
Saurabh Kumar, managing director, EESL said, “To overcome challenges including billing inefficiencies, unauthorised power consumption, and reduce DISCOMs’ financial woes, the government is accelerating adoption of smart meters. Thrust on such efficient systems is critical for consumption and growth in a sustainable manner. It will also enhance consumer experience through improved service delivery.” 
 
Smart meters are part of the overall advanced metering infrastructure solution (AMI) that measures and records consumers’ electricity usage at different times of the day and sends this information to the energy supplier through GPRS technology. It offers consumers better access to information and enables them to make more informed decisions on the use of power at their homes. It can immediately control AT&C losses, due to power pilferage, bypassing meters, defective meters, or errors in meter reading. Every kilowatt of power drawn from the grid is thus accounted for – and billed, thereby boosting Discom revenues. 
 
A public sector enterprises under the power ministry, EESL’s model – Pay-as-you-save (PAYS) has been the base of implementation. EESL procures smart meters including servicing, enabling Discom’s to benefit with zero upfront investment. Their repayment to EESL is through the monetisation of energy savings, resulting from enhanced billing accuracy, avoided meter reading costs and other efficiencies. These savings further enable distribution companies to invest in value-added services for its consumers. 
 
Smart meter technology is critical to India’s ongoing power sector reforms. The Smart Meter National Programme aims to retrofit 25 crore conventional meters with smart variants leading to 80-100 per cent improvement in billing efficiency.
