Previous Question

I’ve heard that England has suspended the rollout of next-generation meters and will be holding public hearings on the subject. Is it true?

Next Question

No. The British government passed a law at the end of January 2013 making the rollout of next-generation meters mandatory. Meter installation is slated to start in 2014. Public hearings are also part of the process. The rollout has been neither suspended nor halted.

The Régie de l’énergie [Québec energy board] has issued two rulings allowing Hydro-Québec to install next-generation meters throughout Québec. The first, in October 2012, concerned the Greater Montréal area. The other, in June 2014, authorized the rollout in all other regions of the province.
