Managing electricity consumption in the house is something that everyone wants. Not only does it include the restricted use of high-power consumption appliances, but it ensures correct generation of your electricity bill and a timely payment. Making informed decisions is one step ahead when it comes to smartly managing electricity consumption in your house.
However, it is only possible when you know the electricity consumption in your house and the bill calculation. In this blog, we will talk about the limitations of current utility processes and how we can help you in this journey. So, let’s get started.
How do users lack control of current utility processes?
Every area comes under a certain Discom, that is, a distribution company. Discom provides electricity in concerned areas, generates electricity bills, and collects consumer payments. Currently, India has users of both regular and smart electricity meters. While in the regular meters, an agent from the Discom comes every month to read the meters and issue the bills. Smart meters push the meter data on their own, facilitating bill generation without any physical visit. Both the meters have their own obvious limitations.
In the current electricity bill processes, the consumer does not have a way to calculate the bills on their own. Because of this, sometimes, the electricity bills can be shockingly high, while at times, they can be too low. So, how do you know if you are being charged right? One solution is to approach your Discom for a detailed understanding. The other way out, the easy one, is Bharat Smart Services. How can we help you get a hold of your electricity consumption and bill calculation of your house? Let’s discuss.
