PATNA: Muzaffarpur urban-1 has become the first electric supply division (ESD) in north Bihar where smart prepaid meters (SPMs) have been installed in all households.

“Thanks to the cooperation of consumers, teamwork and strategic planning of Muzaffarpur engineers, we have been able to achieve this rare feat in just over eight months,” said Sanjeev Hans, MD of the Bihar State Power Holding Company (BSPHCL).

Hans added the goal is to install 13.5 lakh SPMs in the district by December 2024 and 23.5 lakh SPMs across the state by year end. “The process of awarding work for covering the whole state has been finalised and an agreement will soon be signed.”

According to Aditya Prakash, managing director of North Bihar Power Distribution Company Limited, installing SPMs has helped cut aggregate technical and commercial losses and empowered consumers. “For the first time, BSPHCL has recorded a profit of Rs 214 crore,” he said.

Bihar now leads the country in SPM installations.
