Previous Question

Instead of allowing people to opt out, why didn’t Hydro-Québec select remote activation and deactivation technology involving the next-generation meter’s telecommunications card?

Next Question

Although the technology is being studied, it’s not yet on the market. That’s why none of the bidders proposed it in response to our requests for proposals.

Opting out means having a noncommunicating electronic meter with no radiofrequency emissions installed. This meter, already being marketed, is accredited by Measurement Canada. Hydro-Québec’s opting-out program is similar to most others, which take into account by the current state of the technology.
