This paper presents a novel design method of minimizing the queue at the electricity billing counters and to restrict the usage of electricity automatically, if the bill is not paid. The project also aims at proposing a system that will reduce the loss of power and revenue due to power thefts and other illegal activities.

The work system adopts a totally new concept of “Prepaid Electricity”. The IoT based concept is used so that we can continuously monitor the consumption of power (in watts) and if it reaches the minimum amount, it would automatically alert the consumer to recharge through internet. In this Ardiuno processor is used to monitor and control the entire system model. This technology holds good for all electricity distribution companies, private communities, IT parks and self-containing housing projects. The implementation of this project will help in better energy management, conservation of energy and also in doing away with the unnecessary hassles over incorrect billing. The automated billing system will keep track of the real time consumption and will leave little scope for disagreement on consumption and billing.
