CEB Adopts Smart Meters

The meter readers will disappear. The reason: the Central Electricity Board (CEB) plans to buy next month, 3,500 smart meters. This is what emerges from the plane of the Central Electricity Board (CEB) on the long term.

And is said to express the Chairman of CEB, Balraj Naroo, "our position Rose Hill, we can handle everything including reading the various counters." Indeed, the CEB can read at a distance and in real time, the energy consumption of these individuals through electronic meters equipped with a GSM / GPRS modem. For the moment, there is only 300 meters from such subscribers CEB.

This transition to smart meters has several advantages for the CEB, and consumers alike. "Consumers will know their actual consumption on their bills and as the majority of people is professionally active, it will bypass the problems encountered when people are absent when the meter reader comes home," says Balraj Naroo.

In fact, the CEB will eventually need more leaders meter. The body is beginning to prepare for this purpose. "With these counters, you will not need the same level of personal investment for readers. But the CEB is an institution large enough to guarantee employment to these people. We offer them the necessary training if we continue in this direction, "said Balraj Naroo.

These changes are, however, at great cost to the authorities, smart meters costing on average five times more expensive than those normally used. However, with the savings on the reduced number of meter readers, the BEC can also count on a reduction in electricity theft. "There will be a lot less risk of fraud on our network," said Balraj Naroo.

In 2011, the CEB had discovered a network of such massive theft of electricity in Morcellement St André totaling Rs 5 million. A simple bolt counter had been ground. Such operations would be much more complicated with new counters.
