Smart meters are now 'smart boxes'

By the end of 2013 almost 40,000 Waikato households will have a ‘smart box’ installed.

WEL Networks CEO Dr Julian Elder said the company will start installing the first of 35,000 smart boxes in Hamilton city in late August 2012.  Properties in Huntly, Ngaruawahia, Te Kauwhata and Maramarua will receive smart boxes later this year.

These will add to the 3,000 smart boxes WEL Networks began installing in the seaside community of Raglan last year and to be completed in the next few months.

The use of smart boxes will not change consumers’ current pricing plans or meter reading arrangements.

Dr Elder says the company is exploring future enhancements to the WELconnect system that will allow consumers to control power consumption and ideally save money.
