BC Hydro will begin upgrading homes and businesses in Lake Cowichan with the new smart meter in January.

Current meters will be exchanged with a new smart meter, which BC Hydro says will result in immediate savings for the homeowner.

Meter installation typically takes place Monday to Friday  from 8:00 am to 8:00 pm and should take less than ten minutes.

Meter installers will have BC Hydro and Corix logos on their trucks and uniforms and will have photo identification.

A 60 second power interruption is to be expected.
