Meters, be they next-generation or mechanical, do not require any maintenance.
All of our meters are approved by Measurement Canada, an independent agency that imposes strict rules on companies to guarantee the precision of the measurement systems they use. Hydro-Québec is therefore required to install meters that will enable it to meet those standards. Rest assured that next-generation meters installed in your home are reliable, safe and secure and measure actual electricity use.
In addition, meters installed are 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.
