SURVEY OF ELECTRICITY METERS

Hydro-Québec is currently surveying the sites where next-generation meters were installed outdoors to identify the installations that have stationary propane tanks and determine whether or not they comply with Régie du bâtiment (RBQ) standards. These standards require a three-meter clearance between a stationary propane tank and a next-generation meter.
