The Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) is to introduce a new metering system called Automated Meter Reading (ARM), which will allow ECG to communicate with the meter from their offices without having to visit where they are stationed.

The new meters, also called the Smart Meters, will allow the ECG to engage disconnections and get notifications when the meter is tampered with.

Ing. Mrs. Sariel A. Etwire, section manager of metering services of ECG, announced this in Accra at a meeting with editors organized by the Public Utilities Regulatory Commission (PURC).

The smart metering would also phase out the variety of meters already in existence.

The move is to monitor the meter 24 hours in their office without necessarily going to the customer?s house.
