The possibilities of Aqualectra's new Smart Meters

Last week local media reported that Aqualectra, Curaçao's power- and water provider, had started the roll out of their smart meters project. Over the course of the coming 3 years they intend to replace the old power- (~85,000) and water (~80,000) meters with these new smart meters. Aqualectra hasn't provided much information in the media about the implications of the new meters so we hope to give some background here about Smart Meters, AMI, Smart Grids, and what those fancy words mean for the end user.
