Report wireless electric billing... is it possible? in Electronic Projects Design/Ideas Posted November 13, 2010 yep your right, we use PowerLine Technology giving two way communication with the meter, (ideal for turning off non-payment consumers as the meter comes with an internal relay) it also eradicates the need for meter readers! Also the Smart meter has a remote battery powered readout which the consumer can place on a well etc and monitor their KWh usage. Other suppliers have opted for Blue tooth and RF smart meters where some unfortunate guy spends all day driving round automatically uploading the meter readings. Big problem we have found is the loss of monthly KWh consumption when the "guaranteed for life" meters brake!!! The technology and features vary from country to country.
