IESCO G3-PLC based AMI Pilot Project Insights
The principal problem affecting Pakistan’s power sector is the fact that power generation capacity has not been able to assimilate the demand growth causing shortages in electricity supply. This has led to a situation where load shedding and blackouts happen frequently. Consequently, consumers feel little motivation to pay bills when the service provided is highly sporadic, unpredictable and in some instances where estimated billing procedures are being used, the amount to be paid does not accurately reflect the quantity of electricity consumed. Consequently, evasion of bill payments can be commonplace, and DISCOs are unable to fully recover their costs, which, amongst other things, can be a major obstacle to their investment in upgrading the infrastructure and service provision.
KBK being the torchbearer in deploying smart metering networks, has the glory of executing Pakistan’s first state of the art G3-PLC based smart metering project in IESCO.
