Smart meters to help curb electricity theft


Smart metering technology can help Pakistan’s power distribution companies curb power theft and ensure uninterrupted electricity supply to consumers, WealthPK reported.

The main objective of installing smart meters is to ensure effective energy management and to protect the interests of not only the energy provider but also the consumer.

Tariq Mehmood, Chief Information Officer at the National Transmission and Dispatch Company (NTDC), told WealthPK that, “NTDC plans to facilitate the digitalisation of Pakistan’s power sector to curb electricity theft.

It is going to experiment with an innovative new metering system that will assist the network and market operators in efficiently managing the national power grid.” —INP
