Kathmandu, December 5
For the first time in the country, Nepal Electricity Authority has introduced a new system, in which its staffers need not visit individual households to read power metres and decide their charges.
In the first phase, the advance metre reading infrastructure (AMI) has been installed at 362 residential houses and office buildings which are under Ratna Park distribution centre of the NEA.
According to NEA engineer Dristi Pandey, the individual metres are equipped with a modem under the new system, and it allows reading the metre from the distribution centre itself.
Corporate customers are on the priority for now, and domestic customers will benefit in the second phase, according to the distribution centre chief Thir Kumar Khatri.
It has been said that the new technology is a step of the NEA’s journey towards smart metre system.
