India is presently witnessing substantial rise in investments especially industrial and infrastructural areas. This growth is further being augmented by the increase in power generation capacity and reliable power distribution and measurement network. In some developed countries like the United States smart meters are already deployed. Although some companies have introduced smart meters, many households have conventional meters. This provides a chance for companies as well as engineers to develop innovative metering solutions. The proposed system can be incorporated to the installed energy meters without much effort. It consists of a light sensor module which detects the pulses given out by the meter and the python program developed computes the energy consumed by the load and sends these values monthly to the Google spreadsheets via Drive API. The users can access the information on a webpage as well as an Android App. In addition to this, they also receive an SMS with the help of a GSM module interfaced to the Raspberry Pi.
