Smart meters are one of the building blocks of the modern power grid.
Right now, your power meter must be read manually – either by you or one of our employees. We also rely on you to tell us when the power is out at your home or business. The communication is primarily one-way.
With the two-way communications of smart meter technology – and a modernized power grid – we’ll be able to tell when there’s an outage in your area. This will help us to fix it faster. You’ll also be billed for the exact amount of power you use.
Supporting the Power Needs of the Future
This technology also supports a cleaner energy future for our province. We’ll have better visibility into how our power grid is operating – which is critical as we bring more wind and solar onto the grid.
Our goal is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by at least 50% below 2005 levels by 2030.
