The Delhi Electricity Regulatory Commission and other power suppliers have been asked by the Delhi government to implement Time of Day Metering (TOD) system across the city. According to TOD, the cost of electricity consumed will be determined on the basis of peak power and non peak power and one will have to install smart meter to avail this service. If everything gets finalized, Delhi will be the first state to implement this process.

Well placed sources in power department claimed that the consumers will benefit a lot once TOD comes into effect. Besides, the smart meter will record separate consumption rate for non-peak hours, peak hours and off-peak hours.

Apart from that, it has also been learnt that consumers will have to pay Rs 2.60 as against Rs 6.40 per unit of power consumption during non-peak hours, i.e., between 10:30 pm to 6:30 am.

It’s being said that the new proposed system will not only provide beneficial for residential colonies but will also help in reducing the frequency of power outages. In an order issued on August 30, the power supplying firms have been asked to implement smart meter system in step-wise manner. The meters will be connected to the server and will read the data according to the usage pattern of a consumer.
