Abstract : While electricity authorities are trying to meet the power demand on one side, much of energy is getting wasted on other end. At some points in a day, especially during peak hours, energy need to be borrowed from neighboring states or the central pool, to manage the demand; or otherwise, load shedding need to be adopted. This high demand can be solved either by generating more power by installing power stations or by controlling the power usage at the consumer side. New power stations are not a feasible and viable solution. Major electrical wastages in house hold appliances can be considerably reduced with proper monitoring and control. Switching off fans, TV, lights etc. when not in use is a simple task which many fail to do. Here an intelligent or smart meter is introducing, which can carefully monitor the usage pattern and reduce the load during peak hours and also saving electricity cost by 25-30%. The energy meter is connected with the GSM module and get updated units of energy consumed by consumer via Arduino and also turn on/off the appliances using IoT via switching mechanisms.
