SaskPower set to put smart meters in homes across the province

SaskPower will begin to put smart meters in homes across the province starting in the New Year. 
The meter charges users an exact amount and eliminates the need for billing estimates by measuring how much electricity people are using.
The smart meters will also be able to inform SaskPower when a customer faces a power outage.
The new meters will make their way to customers over the next few years, depending on SaskPower’s supply which has been affected by a global microchip shortage.
Customers will have a choice whether they want to opt in for the new systems.
