New Delhi, Sep 25: Now consumers in the city will soon be able to know about their daily electricity consumption and access various other details like reasons for technical fault in transmission line with the company working on a Rs 100-crore project to introduce "new-age" technology.

Under the first of its kind initiative in the country, domestic consumers of Tata Power Delhi Distribution Ltd (TPDDL), will be no longer required to report to the company about snapping of electricity supplies as real time monitoring of power transmission to each and every consumer will be ensured through a communication network, currently used by very few countries.

TPDDL CEO and Managing Director Praveer Sinha said consumers, by using an app in their smart phones, will be able to access a host of information such as consumption during peak and off-peak hours, details of consumption for any period in the current fiscal compared to same period a year ago etc.

He said technology for the ambitious smart metering and communication network project is being sourced from across the globe and a number of leading companies like General Electricals, IBM have been roped in.

"It will totally be a whole new experience for our consumers in Delhi. Such an ambitious project is being implemented for the first time in the country.
