Abstract: The traditional way of reading energy meter is an expensive work where the reader of the meter has to go in person to each meter and take the meter reading manually. This manual reading goes into into the billing software to generate the bill to automate the payment process. This method of reading has short comings, such as reading error and involves more labors. To overcome this issue, an automatic power meter reading and billing system is proposed. Automation of energy meter reading and billing data entry process would reduce the laborious task and financial wastage. The proposed work measures the energy consumption in each house and generates the bill automatically with Arduino and Wi-Fi. The main goal of this work is to reduce the energy consumption in houses by notifing the owner continuously about the amount of units that are consumed. The goal of this work is to automate the billing process by checking the electricity unit’s consumption in a house and hence subsequently reduces the manual labor. The calculations are carried out automatically and the bill is updated on the Internet by the help of Wi-Fi. The bill amount can be checked by the owner anywhere and at any time by visiting the website or the online portal.
