We mainly install meters from Landis & Gyr. We use many models, since our fleet requires many types of devices (e.g.: dual-energy, service entrance with a higher capacity, etc.). Our second supplier for next-generation meters is Elster, in a smaller proportion. As a good management practice, we made the decision to call on two suppliers with a certified technology, all approved by the Régie de l’énergie.
There is no Québec company that makes them.
All meters installed have been approved by Measurement Canada and certified by Hydro-Québec after undergoing numerous tests based on international standards. Each meter is tested at the plant. Upon reception of each batch, Hydro-Québec selects a representative sample of meters to test them. The quality of the meters far exceeds our high expectations.
