The Ontario Government has mandated all Ontario Electricity Distributors to install smart meters on every home and small business by the end of 2010.  NOTL Hydro began their mass deployment of smart meters on February 1st, 2010 so you likely already have your smart meter. If you are unsure, please call the office at (905)468-4235 and we can tell you the date your meter was installed on your home or small business.

Meter Performance
All electricity meters used by Niagara-on-the-Lake Hydro have been tested and approved by Measurement Canada. The approval indicates that your meter, or a meter manufactured in the same group, has been tested for performance, reliability and accuracy before installation.

Hydro Owned
Your electricity meter is owned, installed and maintained by Niagara-on-the-Lake Hydro. It is an offence to tamper with an electricity meter.

The goal for smart metering is to help you manage your electricity costs, while helping Ontario to build a more efficient, more environmentally sound electricity system. Smart meters have been installed in residences and small businesses across Ontario.
