No Problems Locally

Bluewater Power has had no concerns or issues with its smart meters.

The utility insists its smart meters are safe after the Saskatchewan government ordered SaskPower to pull the plug on its program over public safety concerns following several fires.

CEO Janice McMichael Dennis says our meters, supplied by the same company as those in Saskatchewan, have been installed for about 5 years now.

All 105-thousand smart meters in Saskatchewan are being replaced after eight fires were caused by the units for unknown reasons.

The government says it will take up to nine months to replace the smart meters at a cost of at least 13.9 million dollars.
