SaskPower expanding commercial smart meter pilot program

SaskPower is expanding their commercial and industrial smart meter pilot program to businesses across Saskatchewan.

Approximately 7,500 customers will be getting the smart meters.

“It will be a wide-swath across Saskatchewan,” SaskPower spokesperson Jonathan Tremblay said. “From potential restaurants or shopping malls, all the way up to potential mines and oil fields. So we need to test a variety of business types in a variety of areas in Saskatchewan to make sure everything is working well.”

Only one of the 584 meters malfunctioned during the pilot, but Tremblay says it malfunctioned the way they were expecting it to.
