Some city consumers can now track power consumption online

Guyana Power and Light Inc (GPL) customers in Georgetown between Avenue of Republic and Vlissengen Road, and North Road to South Road can now access their electricity consumption online.

GPL said in a statement yesterday that the installation phase of the Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) Project, which is a joined system of smart meters, communications networks, and data management systems, enabling two-way communication between GPL and customers, has been completed and it has since initiated its customer involvement phase.

Customers can register online to read their electricity consumption in real time from any internet ready device from anywhere in the world. Customers using a computer are allowed to register using http://ami.gplinc.net while those using mobile devices can register using http://ami-mobile.gplinc.net. They can sign up using their account number and name.

Customers can access updated readings of their electricity consumption every 15 minutes or hourly. It allows a smart comparative analysis for hourly, daily, monthly and yearly consumption. The service also provides customers with a calculator, which calculates the wattage and the amount of electricity each electrical item in the home or business uses.

“This knowledge provides customers with the power of making more value added decisions relative to purchasing energy efficient items and monitoring usage,” GPL said, noting that it was a part of the company’s vision to transform the way it provides electricity services to its customers through the use of modern technology.

The implementation of the AMI project commenced last year with the installation of approximately 2,000 meters in the pilot zone.

The AMI technology is implemented under the ‘Sustainable Operation of the Electricity Sector and Improved Quality of Service’ project, a US$5.5million loan agreement received through the Government of Guyana from the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB).
