Tata Power-DDL rolls out 2.5 lakh smart meters in first phase
With the aim of providing smart power services to its consumers, Tata Power Delhi Distribution Limited (Tata Power-DDL) is rolling out 2.5 lakh smart meters in the first phase of its ‘Advanced Metering Infrastructure’ (AMI) project in its licensed area of 510 sq km in North and North-West Delhi.
The project will help Tata Power-DDL to provide greater service options and accurate information to its customers on their energy consumption patterns, helping them to manage their electricity usage more efficiently and improve overall reliability by reducing outage time.
A senior official of Tata Power-DDL said “Smart meters give consumers greater control over the use of electricity by providing detailed information about their usage and consumption patterns helping them in planning their expenses better”.
“The meters will also provide more accurate reading of their electricity consumption and helping in faster outage detection and restoration of service by accurately sending information of the outage to the utility thereby decreasing restoration time in case of outages. Smart meters will also help in paving the way for a smart grid, which will act as a backbone towards the smart city mission,” he said.
Praveer Sinha, CEO and MD of Tata Power-DDL said, “We are dedicated to bring the state-of-the-art Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) technology and solutions to our customers in North Delhi. Our work with Landis+Gyr on India’s large scale Smart Meter and RF canopy deployment for our entire operation area of 510 sq kms is a significant step in our effort to bring smart grid technology in India.
Sinha further said “The smart meter deployment will not only empower our consumers with two-way communication system but will also help us to build an important foundation to become a truly Smart Grid along with world class power distribution infrastructure.”
“The project will also help in enhanced monitoring and control points throughout Tata Power-DDL’s network on real time basis and will aid in reduction of commercial losses,” he said.
“The first phase will include putting up of 50,000 three phase meters and two lakh single phase meters and second phase will have five lakh SPM and 50,000 three phase meters due to get started from April 2019. The total replacement and completion of 18 lakh smart meters will be done by 2025,” the official said.
Tata Power Delhi Distribution Limited (established July 1, 2002) is a joint venture between Tata Power and Government of Delhi.
