SaskPower ordered to remove all 105,000 smart meters in the province.
The minister responsible for SaskPower Bill Boyd said the utility company will be taking out all 105,000 smart meters around Saskatchewan.
“I think the concerns about safety are paramount here, the concerns are significant enough,anytime families are at risk in Saskatchewan, actions have to be taken and that’s why we’ve directed SaskPower accordingly,” said Minister Boyd.
Update: on Thursday, GlobalNews reported that “SaskPower has been ordered to remove any smart meters already in use and install the old ones.“
The removal of the smart meters over the next six to nine months will cost around $15 million, according to SaskPower.
“We view it as similar to a recall situation and the people of Saskatchewan shouldn’t be responsible for the costs of this and we’ll do everything we can to recover those costs,” said Boyd.
