EESL’s issues mega smart meter tender

Energy Efficiency Services Limited (EESL) has issued a global tender for procuring 5 million smart meters for Uttar Pradesh and Haryana. EESL will be making the entire upfront investment as well as maintaining the whole metering infrastructure for the next ten years. Further, in a bid to make the project feasible and affordable, EESL has unbundled the advanced metering infrastructure project into two parts – procuring the smart meters and arranging the system integrator. EESL is also planning to issue the tender for selection of the system integrator in September 2017, as a second part of the project.
