BC Hydro selects Clevest Solutions for smart meter deployment

Richmond, BC, July 12, 2011 — BC Hydro has selected Clevest Solutions Inc. of Richmond, B.C. to assist with the deployment of smart meters throughout the province of British Columbia. Clevest will provide a software solution to enable a safe and efficient roll-out of meter installation.

While Vancouver-based Corix Utilities will be installing the majority of the 1.8 million smart meters across the province, BC Hydro will be using Clevest to assist with the deployment of communications infrastructure for commercial meters as well as some residential meters.

In addition to Corix and Itron, Richmond-based Clevest joins its partner Capgemini as suppliers to BC Hydro's smart metering program.

Starting in July, BC Hydro will begin replacing existing BC Hydro customer meters with a modern, fully integrated, smart metering system. Smart meters will help to ensure BC Hydro can continue to deliver safe, reliable and cost effective electricity to customers across the province.

All customers will receive advance notification that smart meters are coming to their community, including a letter from BC Hydro a few weeks prior to their installation date notifying them of the exchange. Installation will be simple and will only take a matter of minutes, and in most cases customers will not need to home.
