End your billing woes; track power usage with Xenius

The coronavirus pandemic virtually brought the entire world, including India, to a standstill and confined people to their homes for well over three months. Most homes had become offices for adults and schools for kids. In such a situation, the usage of more appliances, the internet, and electricity was likely to result in higher bills.

But the kind of exorbitant bills that people received of late has come as a shock to many. They say these are all-time high since the Unlock 1.0. The worst-hit regions are Mumbai, Gurugram, Kerala, and Tamil Nadu.

Power companies attribute the rise in bills to the temporary suspension of meter-reading during the lockdown period in March-April. The reading, they said, resumed only from June onwards. This meant that most of the consumers underpaid for April and May and the bills soared in June as residual electricity amount was also taken into account. Electricity boards around cities received numerous grievances which left the consumers and the department stressed.

But this is not the first time it has happened like that. The hassle of collecting physical meter reading and not knowing the consumption happens many a time and it leads to unpredictable bills. This, in turn, leaves consumers angry and worried.

Not anymore! With Xenius Smart Metering Solution, they can easily track their real-time electricity consumption on their mobile. The application provides accurate data through a secure smart data network, making one’s power bill woes disappear.

Xenius Smart Metering Solution is a prepaid ‘cash-card’ system. When the balance is low, it automatically sends a warning notification via its app, to enable customers to recharge before the power supply is cut off.

Xenius Solutions has been a pioneer in Automatic Meter Reading (AMR) in the country. It is the only cloud-based solution in India, with Class-I accuracy (BIS-certified). An intelligent system that tracks the maximum demand (MD) of the consumer and if the electricity consumption crosses that threshold, it automatically cuts off the power supply to save the consumer from hefty penalties. It even sends a notification to the consumer when the consumption is nearing the allotted amount.

The data can then be accessed by consumers through their mobile phone applications. The same data is also accessed by a dedicated Network Operation Centre (NOC) that monitors the overall health of the system. A dashboard is maintained with every consumer’s power consumption on a daily, weekly and monthly basis.

Tracking power consumption, however, doesn’t mean a low electricity bill. With this, consumers can keep a tab on their energy consumption and it also enables them to cut down on unnecessary wastage. It also saves money on infrastructure as it can work on any meter, so no new meter needs to be installed. All the measures keep consumer’s electricity consumption transparent and also rule out theft of energy. It also helps the planet heal by reducing the carbon footprint of the country.

Smart Metering Solution has been one of the biggest developments in the electricity supply industry since the start of the century. With the emerging digital technologies, the smart metering solution has immense potential to take the world by storm.
