An estimated 3,000 energy-intensive agricultural units and households have been equipped with smart electricity meters (known as Faham in Persian) in the mountainous province of East Azarbaijan since 2016, head of the provincial power company said.
"The agro sector has the biggest share of the new meters and it remains a priority," Adel Kazemi was quoted as saying by the Energy Ministry news portal on Saturday.
Close to 5,000 more units are being equipped with the metering devices in the region, he said, adding that the gadgets are being promoted for economic and environmental reasons, namely to cut costs and consumption.
