Everything is going “smart” these days. From mobile phones to household devices like refrigerators and air-conditioners, the Internet of Things is taking over our lives. Next up: Electricity meters.
By 2026, a majority of Malaysian households will feature a smart meter. Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB) says its aim is to fit 9.1 million homes across the country with the device by then. At a recent media briefing, the electricity provider stated that close to 300,000 smart meters were installed in Melaka between 2016 and 2018 under Phase 1 of its plan.
