How is a Smart Meter different?

A Smart Meter is a tremendous advancement in technology when compared to Ontario’s previous devices. Our older meters could only measure the total amount of electricity used over an entire billing period because they had to be read manually.

A Smart Meter automatically records when electricity is used – Your Smart Meter will record your total electricity consumption hour by hour, and it will send that information to us automatically through wireless technology.

Smart Meters make Time-of-Use (TOU) prices possible – With the ability to measure when electricity is used, different prices can apply at different times of the day. With Time-of-Use pricing, you have a new way to manage your electricity use and your bills.
