How Smart Meters Work
Meters Collect the Data
Every day, your smart meter is measuring and storing how much electricity is being used. This information is available to you the following day through myAccount.
Meters Transmit the Data
Meters send the data back through our network, which is then verified by the Independent Electricity System Operator (IESO) before being used to create your bill. To learn more about the how the IESO collects and audits Time-of-Use data for LDCs please visit their company website.
How Smart Meters Benefit You
Monitor your electricity usage
You can track your usage online and take steps to manage your bill.
By using online tools you will be able to see how much electricity is flowing to your property. If that property is a cottage that is supposed to be shut down for the winter, it can save you big money.
