No plans yet for wider use of digital smart power meters
Winnipeg Free Press
Manitoba Hydro has no immediate plans to expand the use of smart meters after mixed reviews in other provinces, including unexplained fires in Saskatchewan and malfunctions in B.C.
The meters, which transmit consumption to a power utility, are being used to a very limited extent now in Manitoba. SaskPower is in the process of removing 105,000 recently installed smart meters following concerns eight fires may have been linked to the units.
Strategy's shift of focus a strong move
After years of debating and arguments and failed negotiations, Canada's premiers finally reached an agreement to move forward with a national energy strategy at last month's annual premiers conference in Charlottetown.
Highlighting the agreement is a move away from a strategy almost exclusively focusing on oil and gas development and transportation, to acknowledging climate change impacts and clean energy alternatives and planning for the long-term benefits of developing those alternative energies.

Study: Increased demand for construction labour
