Electricity meters can be read on mobile phones in five townships of the Yangon Region, according to Yangon Electricity Supply Corporation (YESC). During this FY, the government completes digital meter installation processes using an advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) system in five townships of Yangon and people can read the meter on their phones, YESC stated.
The AMI system will reduce power losses significantly and people can know their used meter units over their mobile phones using the Me Bill application in a timely manner. Officials installed AMI system-based 66,189 digital meters in Lanmadaw, Latha, Kyauktada, Pazundaung and Botahtaung townships and it is now 98.66 per cent completed.
Officials will change the remaining 900 meter boxes. In the past, it allowed only one service wire for each apartment and it caused complex cables on lamp posts. Now, power poles look neat and tidy for using only one larger service wire.
