2010: A metering odyssey

Film Reel

Mississauga, Ontario — (METERING.COM) — June 29, 2006 – As part of an initiative to implement smart meters province-wide, Enersource Hydro Mississauga in conjunction with the Ontario government has held an open house where local residents were introduced to smart meter technology through innovative video production and how-to guides, branded “Smart Avenues”.

In addition to the video production, residents also took part in experiential studies on the important steps of activation for energy efficiency programs, including the time of use pricing plan, load control plans for coordinating the cycling of various devices at times of peak use, and the option of whole home power curtailment – entitled “Power Down On Peak”.

Commenting on the success of the project, President and Chief Executive Officer of Enersource Corporation, Gunars Ceksters, remarked: “The goal we set out as we launched this pilot was to deliver to these residents the tools and information that they will eventually need to take advantage of the smart meters. We think we have hit the mark with the video production sequences previewed with residents at our event, and the complete series of 15 vignettes will be delivered to our ‘Smart Avenues’ residents in the next few weeks.”
