Many people doubt that compared with the previous manual meter reading data of mechanical meters, smart meters are indeed much higher, and said that smart meters themselves also consume electricity, will they be included in the electricity consumption of residents?
"In fact, smart meters" run fast "is a misunderstanding. On the contrary, smart meters are more accurate than traditional mechanical meters. " The power consumption of TV, refrigerator, water heater and other household appliances is small when they are in standby for a long time. The sensitivity of traditional mechanical electric meters is poor, coupled with aging and other reasons, this part of electricity is not measured, while intelligent meters can accurately measure. In addition, mechanical electricity meter adopts manual meter reading mode, which has problems of estimation, omission and wrong reading. Intelligent meter has the functions of high measurement accuracy, intelligent deduction, real-time inquiry of electricity price, electricity memory, and remote information transmission, which can avoid human errors to the maximum extent and effectively prevent electricity theft.
Many citizens find that the red light on smart meters flickers frequently. Does this mean that smart meters "run fast"? There are fault lights and pulse lights on smart meters. Among them, smart meters commonly used in families will flash 1200 times per stroke, which also leads to the illusion that smart meters run fast. In addition, the power consumption of smart meters is not included in the residential electricity consumption, but is included in the transmission loss of the public grid, and will not be transferred to the people.
In fact, household electricity consumption is closely related to electricity consumption habits. "Even if the household appliances are in the off state, if the power plug is still connected to the socket, the control circuit board in the appliance will remain in the continuous charging state, which will cause waste of electricity and run counter to the energy conservation and emission reduction advocated by us." In addition, if citizens have doubts about the accuracy of smart meters, they can apply to the power business hall for inspection. The business hall will initiate the application process. It will take about 3 days from the initiation of the application to the household dismantling of the meters. After that, users can carry the removed meters to the statutory electricity meter measurement and inspection station authorized by the government for inspection.
