Traditional metering method is not a convenient for energy measurement and billing. It is more difficult to calculate the bill amount to be paid by a particular user based on the energy consumed and to feed the value to the Electricity Board. This paper aims a new approach for data security and transmission of data using Power Line Carrier Communication (PLCC).This system has an immediate access to the consumer residence in an area with the central board using PLCC. The ARM based system continuously monitors and records the Energy consumption. The smart meter in each residence is connected by central board through the power line. The smart meter calculates the amount to be paid according to the units consumed and also it notify the status of the load connected with it. With help of PLCC the data can transceived from the individual appliances. The data are energy consumption, cost and usage time. The data were transferred from smart meter to knowledge base. This system has the advantages of doing Energy auditing in an area and to find out the losses in the distribution system. LabVIEW and Eclipe software is used to view the output of the individual appliances.
