TSSPDCL, Telangana State Southern Power Distribution Company Limited, known for adopting the old school methods, and outdated practices, have finally placed their foot in modern-day technology. They have finally decided to install smart meters, which will help the household and make bill generation easier.
The smart meter will help households switch their payment system from prepaid to postpaid and provide easier access to the power consumed per day. The installation of these meters will remove the company's old way of generating bills by the door to door visit as the bills will be generated digitally from here on. The one significant benefit of the smart meter is that people will now realise how much power they're using and limit their usage based on their affordability.
The payment of bills can be made through digital payment methods. The smart meter will show us our usage and our balance, and the electricity will go off when the balance becomes zero.
This intelligent meter facility has been tried and tested at housings in Jeedimetla and government offices. The meter has been working successfully and delivered accurate readings. The meters will be installed under the Atal Distribution System Improvement Yojana (ADITYA) scheme, and the Central Government's approval is awaited.
