There are many problems in metering and billing processes like the going of meter reader to each customer meter to manually take the meter reading, the probability of the non-existence of the customers at their homes during that time, the lack of integrity and credibility of some of the meter readers, the safety and the outback areas represent a huge drawback cannot be neglected. In other hand, the in service classical energy meter type (induction type) suffers from well-known measuring errors. The above problems result in two significant points, waste of much money due to the large number of employees (meter readers) and the weakness in electricity management which results in lack in electric power. This project provides an excellent solution to the problems mentioned above where the system has been designed based on the use of energy smart meter to read electrical energy consumed to get an accurate reading. Then the energy reading is sent to the control centre in the electricity department based on GSM/SMS technology. The system in the electricity department receives readings and makes processing operations on them and extracts the bills that must be paid by the customer. The system also sends a message to the own customer mobile phone which contains the current bill, due bill, and total bill every two months have to be paid. In addition the system has the ability to print out a hard copy of the customer bill. Finally the proposed system has the ability of automatic power outage if the customer refrains or delays for certain time in paying the bills by means of an SMS.
