If you want to ensure that your power bill is as accurate as possible, be sure to submit your meter reading every month. For every month that your meter is not read, we must estimate your power use by looking at your last 12 months of electricity consumption.
Submit Your Meter Reading
There are four easy ways you can submit your meter reading:
Benefits of Submitting Your Own Meter Reading
- Keep your monthly bill as accurate as possible
- Minimize the difference between estimates and actual readings
- Understand and reduce your power consumption
When to Read Your Meter
The most ideal time to read and submit your power meter reading is between one week and one day before your billing date. Submit your online meter reading until 8:30 p.m. on your billing date; this helps to ensure that your bill is as current and accurate as possible.
SaskPower reads meters according to the following schedule:
How to Read Your Meter
If you find a meter read card in your mailbox, we need you to read your meter and submit your reading to us.
We read most meters every three months, but often there are obstacles blocking us from accessing meters (such as unleashed pets, items stacked in front of meters, etc.), which is why we need you to read your meter and submit your results.
Minimize fluctuations in your power bill by making sure our meter readers can do their jobs.
Keep Your Meter Neater
Sometimes our meter readers cannot gain access to your meter, especially if you have a large dog, a locked fence or other obstacle. If this is the case, the meter reader will leave a card in your mailbox for you to complete.
