Smart Meters

Creating a smarter energy future for Nova Scotia


In 2019, we started a multiyear project to upgrade 500,000 electric meters in Nova Scotia to smart meters — an important first step in modernizing our electrical grid to provide customers with more convenience, reliability and control over their energy use.

More than 95% of homes and businesses in the province have been upgraded to smart meters and work will continue throughout 2022 to upgrade those remaining.
