FREMONT, CA: Smart meters are the new trend in the energy sector, which can directly transfer the meter readings to the supplier with better precision.

The screen provides the household with real-time usage information, including kWh cost and use.

To be precise, a smart meter is a next-gen device in both the electricity and gas industry. The smart meters can be considered as a replacement for the regular and standard meter devices, which utilize decades-old technologies and require a human interference for recording the readings. The new meters make use of a secure national communication network to transfer the actual energy usage to the respective suppliers automatically and wirelessly.
