Electricity distribution operator Oshee has invested in the sector of power consumption’s measurement for the acquisition of 50,000 metering devices, and plans to equip all its customers by early next year, Albanian Telegraphic Agency said, as quoted by Albreporter.info portal.
Sources from the Ministry of Energy and Industry announce they are working to ensure a World Bank funding to complete consumer equipment with energy meters. Deutsche Telekom began to produce 9,300 smart meters to be installed in the most problematic areas of Albania.
The energy meters not only affect the reduction in consumption, but exclude any possibility of theft of electricity, over-invoicing and imprecise assessment on the part of Oshee’s employees, the report said. The new system of intelligent metering can be controlled directly in a portal online by the customer, in order to know the amount of consumed energy and better economize its costs.
