MONTREAL, Jan. 30, 2012 /CNW Telbec/ - Hydro-Québec reaffirms that the
installation of its advanced metering infrastructure will not be
accompanied by a change to rates. The next-generation meters allow
Hydro-Québec to read customers' consumption remotely and to bill based
on actual consumption.
The company has no plans to apply time-of-use rates as is the case
The savings of $300 million associated with the project are exclusively
attributable to remote meter reading and to remotely managing
disconnection and connection requests when customers move.
