Smart electric meters are getting installed in the process of implementation of the system. They will ensure the accuracy and reliability of electric power accounting, financial discipline and quality of power supply of consumers.
The project is implemented in cooperation with the South Korean company KT Corporation. The company representative In Kee Kim dwells upon the matter:
“The new electric meters are equipped with a function of detecting different kinds of fraud and the immediate disconnection in the event of such detection, as well as the ability to remotely turn off if the consumer does not pay the electricity consumed. In addition, new meters allow the use of flexible tariffs based on the amount of electricity consumed, the time consumption in the different seasons of the year and / or the time of day and so on.
Overall, the automated system of control and metering of electric power is an advanced technology and has many features. In particular, the Uzbekenergo will be able to quickly identify network problems, more accurate and timely billing for electricity, to quickly identify the facts of illegal connections and the use of electricity.”
