In a letter addressed to Fernie City Council, Diane Tammen, BC Hydro Community Relations Manager, East Kootenay, says we can expect Smart Meter installations to occur over the next several months with the bulk of installations taking place this spring and summer.

In order to provide information regarding the Smart Meters, BC Hydro will host a workshop at the Association of Kootenay Boundary Local Governments (AKBLG) conference that will take place in April. In addition to the AKBLG they have confirmed regional presentations at the Cranbrook Chamber luncheon, the Local Government Management Association in Kimberley and the Kootenay iTech Trade Show.

If customers have any questions or concerns they can contact Tammen at or by phone at 250-489-6862.
