The Kurdistan Region of Iraq has started implementing the (pre-payment) system for the collection of electricity wages, coinciding with the arrival of advanced stages in the installation of quantitative electric meters, in order to control waste and reduce energy.
Ali Ismail Abdul Ghani, a member of the Higher Committee for the Installation of Smart Meters in the Kurdistan Region, said in a statement to the official newspaper that "the (prepaid) system is a new technology for electricity pricing that does not differ from the previous one, but the prepayment is similar to the mobile balance."
Abdel-Ghani explained, "The card for this system shows the number of kilowatts used by subscribers, and it will be economical to follow up the amount of exchange through a device set up, showing the amount of the balance, whether the site is commercial, industrial, agricultural or home."
Abdul-Ghani pointed out that "there was an experiment with this system in three regions in Dohuk and one in Erbil, and we will start the beginning of next October to implement it in six other locations, and then circulate it after three months in most regions of the region."
For his part, a spokesman for the Ministry of Electricity of the Territory, Omid Ahmed, said, "The ministry has installed one million and 300 electrical meters in the region so far, and only 150 thousand meters are left to cover the rest of the subscribers in the region."
Ahmed indicated that "these meters have a role in raising the level of services, organizing collection and benefiting from the technical capabilities of the (prepaid) system that will be applied in the region to provide subscribers with electricity around the clock," noting that "the (prepaid) system represents a new experiment, as it was conducted It has successful tests in the markets of Erbil and Dohuk, and it will be circulated throughout the region.”
