Discussion: Smart Meters


Smart Meters are electronic meters that, once an Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) is added, can measure and record actual power usage and water usage and transmit that data wirelessly over a secure network to a central data management system.

The City is investigating the implementation of an appropriate AMI system for Saskatoon that would make both electricity and water meters 'smart'.

Smart meters would provide a number of benefits to customers and the City. Please view the Smart Meters information in the documents that are attached, then click on the "Topic" at the bottom to provide us with your comments. This discussion will be open until February 28, 2014. A summary of all comments received will be incorporated into a March 2014 Report to City Council
