N.B. Power aims to revive smart meter proposal

NB Power

NB Power is looking to revive its proposal for smart meters in the province.

It is seeking approval from the Energy and Utilities Board (NBEUB) for the $92-million capital project.

The utility estimates switching to smart meters, or advanced metering infrastructure (AMI), will save $31.1 million over 15 years.

The board will hold a pre-hearing conference in Saint John on Aug. 26.
