Today a member of Toronto Hydro who was removing the old electrical meters and installing the new smart meters let us photograph the procedure, and explained why the new meters are a big step forward in helping with electricity conservation and in simply helping people reduce their electrical bills.

He informed us that smart meter records how much energy is used and when it’s used. This allows for different electricity rates for different times of the day, and will allow people to choose when to use electricity to take advantage of lower rates.
