B.C. follows Ontario mistake on meters

Hydro One in Ontario started installing ‘smart meters’ back in the late 1990s.

To the Editor,

Hydro One in Ontario started installing ‘smart meters’ back in the late 1990s. They soon found out that in the cold winter temperatures, the units were anything but smart.

It seems cold has a negative effect on the accuracy of these things.

So Hydro One in its wisdom started what is called time of use metering. This is done in an attempt to steer users away from peak power time.

Don’t know what happened to those smart meters, perhaps B.C. Hydro bought them.
