Key considerations in choice of smart meters

ADD GRUP shares its vision over several important considerations related to the choice of smart metering solutions, like prepayment, means to prevent electricity theft and correct meter vendor selection criteria.

Ruslan Casico from ADD Grup, explains that DSOs are benefitting from prepayment solutions as it is mandatory for consumers to pay for power in advance eliminating potential debt to the DSO.

Additionally, this system enables the consumer to manage their consumption more efficiently.

Casico touches on energy theft and asset vandalism which is crippling many regions around the world today including Russia, India and Africa. He notes that the smart meter should be placed out of reach in hard to access areas for such crimes.
