What are smart meters?
As the name suggests, these meters will enable BEST consumers to monitor and manage their electricity usage remotely. These meters will also allow users to switch to a prepaid model, which can be useful when users are on a long vacation and are not using electricity for extended periods of time.
Apart from this, these smart meters also have a net-metering option – if the user has a solar panel installed, this feature automatically detects their total electricity usage and deducts the energy generated from their solar panels. The user will only have to pay the deficit or will receive a credit post the calculation.
Users will also be able to manage their appliances remotely via a mobile application in case those appliances don’t already come with smart features.
