BENEFITS OF SMART METERS


We’re modernizing Nova Scotia’s electricity grid to provide you with more convenience, reliability and control. The first step is upgrading to smart meters — work that began in 2019 and will continue into 2021. Once all meters in the province are upgraded, we will turn on the smart technology so you can begin enjoying the benefits.

 

Information is power  

Smart meters put you in control of your energy use. When smart meter technology comes online in 2021, you’ll be able to easily access and monitor your energy use. You’ll also have the option of setting billing notifications to help manage your electricity costs.

 

Enhanced service

Smart meter technology makes connecting or disconnecting electricity easier and faster. If you’re moving, or if you have a seasonal property, there will be no need to book an appointment. Just give us a call and we’ll turn your power on or off remotely.

 

Quicker response

Smart meters will notify us when your power goes out, helping us respond more quickly in the event of an outage.
