Customers unhappy with SaskPower meters

- SaskPower recently received a copy of the report examining its smart meter program, as part of the formal review conducted by independent consultants. It was noted that the rollout of smart meters did not meet the high standards that customers have come to expect of SaskPower or SaskPower’s own standards, referring to eight unusual meter failures that resulted in overheating or melting on or at the meter site.

SaskPower will now examine each aspect of the CIC review, and take recommendations forward as planning for new smart meters continues in the next several years. SaskPower previously reached an agreement with the meter manufacturer that will assist with the pursuit of a smart grid for the province.

“SaskPower employees are working hard to address the challenges faced with the smart meter program,” said Minister Bill Boyd, Minister responsible for SaskPower. “This report provides valuable insight as to where gaps existed. We will be implementing changes accordingly over the next few days.”
