Smart Meters focus of July 31 presentationPosted: July 20, 2012
Radium Hot Springs Chamber of Commerce members will welcome Cindy Verschoor, manager – Communications and Public Affairs, Smart Metering Program for BC Hydro who will be speaking about BC Hydro’s Smart Metering Program July 31, from 2 to 3 p.m. at the Radium Prestige.
According to a BC Hydro press release, smart metering and smart grid developments are prevalent throughout the world and, like many other utilities, BC Hydro is modernizing the electrical grid and metering systems. This will enable customers to actively manage their energy choices, adopt new energy conservation solutions and benefit from an electric grid that is modern, reliable, safe and cost effective.
Starting in July 2011, BC Hydro began upgrading homes and businesses with new smart meters. The Smart Metering Program is a critical infrastructure upgrade that begins with replacing approximately 1.8 million existing meters with a modern, fully integrated smart metering system. In addition to improving safety and reliability, the Smart Metering Program will lead to enhanced customer service, reduced electricity theft, improved operational efficiency and reduced wasted electricity. Smart meters will also support greater customer choice and control, by enabling customers to use in-home feedback tools when they become available.
This presentation will be a chance to learn more about the program, and have your questions answered.
Tea/coffee and water will be provided at the meeting.
Please RSVP to the Radium Chamber office if you are going to attend so they have an idea of the number of participants.
