About the Project
The City of Lethbridge Electric Utility will be replacing all residential electric meters over the next three years. Meter replacements are currently occurring on an as needed basis. Beginning in 2015, the replacement project will begin replacing meters on a neighbourhood by neighbourhood basis.
Every home has an electric meter that records how much electricity is used. This information is used for billing purposes. Every electric meter has a seal with an expiry date.
Industry Canada (a department of the Government of Canada) rules and regulations have made a large number of our electrical meters ready for replacement. With the maturing of new metering technology, we are taking advantage at this point in time to update our entire metering fleet to modern and efficient standards.
Elster Canada of Burlington Ontario is the metering technology supplier who the City of Lethbridge has chosen for our upgrade. Elster meters are well proven in the Canadian marketplace and environment and their products are fully Industry Canada certified and stood out in our review as having the best functionality for the investment.
