As part of steps to help cut electricity consumption, Tokyo Electric Power Co. will start installing next-generation electricity meters called "smart meters" at homes around autumn next year, The Yomiuri Shimbun has learned.
To lower production costs of smart meters, which will be passed on to consumers, TEPCO will select meter manufacturers through general competitive bidding, with tenders open to any bidders. This marks the first time for open bidding for electricity meter procurement, company sources said Saturday.
