ToD domestic power billing from New Year

ToD domestic power billing from New YearTime-of-the-day (ToD) metering of power consumption is being introduced for nearly 11,000 high-end domestic connections in the State from the New Year to give them a financial incentive in consciously shifting a part of their overall electricity use from the hours of peak demand to those of lean demand daily. The Kerala State Electricity Board (KSEB) is introducing this metering and billing system following a direction given by the Kerala State Electricity Regulatory Commission a few months ago. The idea is to incentivise the consumer sector to help solve the systemic problem of the high peak demand in the State.

The problem in Kerala is that from around 6 p.m. to 10 p.m., power consumption is too high compared to the daytime consumption. Evening power consumption is naturally high everywhere when all lights are switched on, but in Kerala the variation is too wide because the industries sector that draws large quantities of power throughout the day is not as developed as in States such as Tamil Nadu and Karnataka.
