I would assume it's not that great of an idea. The new thing over here on my side of the planet is "smart meters" - They transmit your meter reading (+detailed usage stats) wirelessly. So, I base my assumption on a second assumption that engineers working for the power company scientifically evaluated all the options (including power line communication) and decided that wireless was superior. maybe my assumtions are stupid, but when I think of all the meters that are on the grid and trying to network them all so they don't try to "talk over one another", I make a 3rd assumtion that it would be a mind-boggling mess; especially in India, after seeing pictures of India's power system:
