India is becoming increasingly smarter, as many of its cities are jockeying to tap the early-mover advantage and utilize the supportive government policies & fiscal incentives to evolve into future-ready cities. Sustainability being the cornerstone of smart cities, smart electric metering solutions have become an integral part of smart infrastructural development. Smart meters not only reduce the dependency on fossil fuels, but also help to conserve electricity and improve the accuracy of meter readings. In fact, states that have installed smart meters have demonstrated an average surge of nearly 25 percent in billing vis-à-vis conventional meters, reveals a report from EESL. Moreover, these smart meters bring some unique benefits such as remote meter reading & bill generation and remote connection & disconnection to the table, which have proven to be a boon amidst the pandemic.
