The Ministry of Electricity announced, on Sunday, that it extended an invitation to four international companies to complete the electronic collection project during the next phase.
The ministry’s spokesman, Ahmed Al-Abadi, said in an interview with Al-Iqtisad News, that "the ministry sent calls during the past week to four international companies to proceed with the electronic collection project."
He added, "The most prominent companies that the ministry has opened are Huawei and Shanghai, as well as two foreign companies," noting that
"these companies are among the advanced companies in the energy sector and the smart metrics industry."
Al-Abadi affirmed that "the standards that will be set up in homes will adopt a pre-payment system,"
indicating that the electronic collection project aims to rationalize electricity consumption and convert informal consumers in informal areas into regular subscribers.
He continued, "One of the companies that the ministry had contracted with in the past to set up smart meters later found that its meters do not conform to the Ministry's specifications, and the latter fined the company."
Al-Abadi revealed that "70% of the electricity collected goes to waste."
