STELCO has introduced smart meters, which record the consumption of electricity and communicates it to STELCO for monitoring and billing.
During the ceremony held to mark 70 years of service of STELCO, MD Hassan Mugunee stated that by 2020, smart meter technology would be introduced and consumption reading will be easily recorded in a timely manner.
He further said the implementation work has commenced, and that customers will be informed about the application and billing process.
Noting that discussions are currently ongoing on the installation of smart meters, MD Mugunee further said the meters currently installed will need to be completely altered. He also stated that the newly installed meters will be directly connected to STELCO and all the necessary information regarding billing would be relayed to the customers immediately.
