Next-generation meters communicate several times a day to ensure that consumption data is transmitted regularly and efficiently to Hydro-Québec. This way, Hydro-Québec can locate an outage when a meter stops transmitting information and therefore restore service more quickly. Regardless, the meter’s emissions total less than 90 seconds per day.
We are also working on implementing an electricity management tool. By the end of 2016, you will be able to follow your daily consumption in your Customer Space.
