Nova Scotia Power Says Smart Meters Are Coming
Nova Scotia Power says all its customers will be switched to so-called smart meters.
The company says the province’s Utility and Review Board has approved the move.
It says the new meters will provide customers with more information about their daily energy use and lead to more efficient power restoration during outages.
NSP says the 133 million dollar cost of switching to smart meters will come at no cost to customers.
It also says the new meters will reduce costs by 38 million dollars over the next 20 years.
Nova Scotia Power expects to start installing the new meters by the end of next year.
