The Authority of Electricity Regulation (AER) instigated the Advanced Meter Reading (AMR) Initiative with the Electricity Holding Company SAOC (EHC) and five electricity companies. ESB International was appointed as a consultant to provide technical support to the Authority throughout the project lifecycle.

Reduce non-technical losses, improve billing, and examine customer response to time-of-use tariffs and provide detailed usage information.
- The Solution
