SaskPower launches smart meter pilot for commercial, industrial customers

SaskPower launched a pilot to test commercial and industrial smart meters as a part of its broader grid modernization program, according to an Oct. 5 release.

The pilot calls for installing approximately 500 meters on the sites of two participating industrial customers and at a number of SaskPower and SaskEnergy facilities. "This pilot will allow SaskPower to test the functionality and software used by the meters and the data communication network over the coming year," the company said.

SaskPower doesn't have a plan to deploy residential smart meter deployment until at least 2018 and 2019, as it first plans to identify a meter that meets the new, more rigorous safety standard.
