Why We’re Upgrading

Smart meters will put you in control of your energy usage and help us respond quicker in the event of an outage. It’s a big step forward in creating a modernized electricity grid that is based on choice, convenience, reliability, and more customer control.

As well, smart meters are the foundation for integrating future smart grid innovations, as customer demand grows for technologies like electric vehicles, smart appliances, and battery systems.

Over the next 20 years, our $133 million investment in smart meters and supporting technology will reduce costs in our electricity system, which will help us keep rates stable and affordable for you.

Smart meters will become Nova Scotia Power’s new standard of service. We plan to upgrade every business and home in the province by early 2021 and we will do this at no cost to you.
