FortisBC Receives Approval for Advanced Gas Meters – Customers Can Get Accurate Daily Readings on Usage

Surrey — FortisBC Energy Inc. (FortisBC) received approval from the British Columbia Utilities Commission (BCUC) for its proposed Advanced Gas Meters project. Through this project, FortisBC will enhance its customers’ experience by upgrading more than one million gas meters across B.C.

With the installation of the new meters and wireless network, FortisBC gas customers will receive several benefits:

  • Customers will be able to access daily data on their gas use, empowering them with the tools they need to make cost-effective energy choices for their families and businesses.
  • Safety enhancements such as notifications if unusual gas flows are detected, which could indicate a faulty appliance.
  • Reduced inconvenience to customers by no longer needing to shut-off gas service during meter exchanges or regularly entering customers’ properties to read meters.

“The Fire Chiefs’ Association of BC fully supports the deployment of FortisBC’s advanced gas meters. As a non-profit organization focused on fire safety across the province, we recognize these new meters will provide enhanced safety features and improved reliability to B.C. homes and businesses. We appreciate FortisBC’s ongoing commitment to safety and innovation and look forward to continuing to engage on the project,” said Dan Derby, president at Fire Chiefs’ Association of BC.
