Bangladesh Power Development Board (BPDB or PDB) has brought a ‘smart meter’ to show off at the 4-day long National Power and Energy Week-2016 fair while the country is celebrating its ‘success’ in reaching 15,000 MW of power generation capacity.
The smart meter is capable of communicating with the subscriber through a mobile phone interface. The subscriber will be able to check their daily usage statistics through an app. The app will also let a customer pay his electric bill.
Moreover, the integrated meter system will alert the subscriber about the usage and bill statistics through the mobile app. The subscriber will also be able to see his estimated bill for a year which will be calculated on the basis of current usage ratio.
