These smart meters have optimized the operational performance of Distribution Companies (DISCOMs) by increasing the billing and collection efficiency, reducing the operation and maintenance cost; and enhancing the quality of service. This paradigm shift in India’s power sector is adding momentum to the Government’s efforts toward a nationwide adoption of smart meters.

 Mr Arun Kumar Mishra, CEO, EESL said, “EESL is deploying India’s first large-scale smart metering project under the Smart Meter National Programme (SMNP), in states of Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Haryana, New Delhi and Andaman. EESL has taken IoT Services from BSNL, Jio and Vodafone Idea for the network connectivity in DISCOMs. We are also working in association with Larsen & Toubro Ltd (L&T), Robert Bosch and EDF energy, which provide unique system integration solutions. EESL smart meters are transforming India’s energy landscape by increasing billing and collection efficiency; reducing operation and maintenance costs; enhancing the quality of services and providing consumers with demand side management (DSM) options. It has led to huge revenue upside and improved financial standing for the DISCOMs in these regions. We look forward to replicating these successful stories on AMI projects, pan India.”
