Smart Meters

Creating a smarter energy future for Nova Scotia


We’re modernizing Nova Scotia’s electricity grid. The system that has powered our everyday needs for a century is evolving and we’re excited to be adding more wind and solar generation, battery storage and electric vehicles to the grid. Moving forward, smart technology will be the foundation for a cleaner, more reliable and affordable energy future for Nova Scotia. The first step is upgrading more than 500,000 homes and businesses to smart meters — work that began in late 2019 and will be completed later this year (2021).

BENEFITS OF SMART METERS


Starting in late 2021, when meter upgrades are complete and smart technology is turned on, you will benefit from increased convenience, reliability and control when it comes to managing your electricity.
