Conference: Smart Metering Canada 2006
Location: Toronto, Ontario
Presenter: Daniel Pouliot
Abstract: The Ministry of Energy is attempting to determine the merits of one way or two way communication link to the meter.  The cost and functionality necessary to achieve 5% demand reduction is the question.  However, Milton Hydro Distribution Inc. is billing actual residential customer with OEB published Time-of-Use (TOU) rates since October 2005.  This presentation focuses on how Milton Hydro is doing this and what technology is being utilised to do this. Pouliet provides insights into these very fundamental questions and perspectives on what industry segments are moving into the smart meter space.
