Consumers’ complaints of estimated bills from the Utility have risen to an alarming extent in recent years. On the other hand, Utility incurs huge losses attributing it to electric energy consumption theft among consumers. These complaints by the utility and the consumer led to the quest for a system that in addition to recording energy consumption data, will be able to compute and report the data to the Utility remotely. This work proposes the implementation of smart meter which can effectively and seamlessly record, compute and report the consumers’ energy consumption data remotely, as an effective means to halt estimated bills from the Utility and energy consumption theft among consumers. The design was implemented using prototypical methodology and was integrated with Global system for mobile communication to facilitate communication between the Utility and the Smart meter. In conclusion, it explored the use of smart meter technology in ensuring remote reporting of data in the overall interest of enhancing electric energy distribution in Nigeria.
