<p>According to volume, IntelliSmart has been given the biggest smart metering project in the nation for Uttar Pradesh under the RDSS. The Gurugram-based business said in a statement dated December 5 that IntelliSmart would install 67 lakh smart meters as part of the project in 14 districts that are under the authority of Pashchimanchal Vidyut Vitran Nigam Limited.</p>
<p>According to the statement, IntelliSmart has obtained the Letter of Award (LoA) from Madhya Gujarat Vij Company Limited (MGVCL) and Dakshin Gujarat Vij Company Limited (DGVCL) in Gujarat for the deployment of end-to-end smart metering solutions for a total of 51 million prepaid smart meters.</p>
<p>Through competitive bidding, the business got the right of lease (LoA) for 15 lakh smart meters from Assam Power Distribution Business Limited in Assam. Another IntelliSmart success story is Assam, where the company previously won India’s first smart metering project through a competitive bidding process under a DBFOOT arrangement for more than 6 lakh smart meters. According to IntelliSmart Infrastructure, they have already installed more than 60% of the meters in a record amount of time.</p>
<p>South Bihar Power Distribution Company Limited has awarded a project to IntelliSmart in Bihar to install 36 lakh smart meters.</p>
<p>Building a robust portfolio of smart metering projects, IntelliSmart Infrastructure’s portfolio is around Rs 20,000 crore in size.</p>
<p>“This (smart metering) is one of the most important power sector digitalization programs worldwide and shall go a long way to improve the financial and operational health of the distribution companies but would also be critical for the success of large-scale renewables and e-mobility in the grid,” stated Anil Rawal, MD and CEO of IntelliSmart. The government’s faith in IntelliSmart’s ability to lead digitalization in the electricity industry and establish itself as the utilities’ go-to digital partner is reaffirmed by these significant initiatives.</p>
<p>The effective execution of smart metering initiatives, he said, will aid in the nation’s efforts to achieve net-zero emissions and the energy transition.</p>
<p>The RDSS scheme’s smart meter installation is anticipated to take 27 months, and the next 8 to 10 years will be dedicated to operations and maintenance.</p>
