BC Hydro supplies power to WK

Firstly FortisBC does not operate the hydro for West Kelowna—this is all BC Hydro.

To the editor:

Just had to drop a note regarding the ridiculously non-informed letter that Anita sent regarding the smart meters.  (FortisBC Can Keep Hands off Analog Meter, Oct. 11 Capital News.)

Firstly FortisBC does not operate the hydro for West Kelowna—this is all BC Hydro.

Secondly, FortisBC does not skulk around at quarter past 10 at night, unless there is an emergency and then they are required to respond and fix the issue—anytime of the day or night.

Thirdly, smart meters are being installed in all residences by BC Hydro in West Kelowna and there was ample opportunity to dispute this program.

Fourthly, a residence cannot refuse to have these meters installed as this is now the mandate per BC Hydro.

All residences living in West Kelowna received a very detailed, informative pamphlet and letter regarding the placement dates and information regarding why smart meters are being introduced. And currently, despite Anita’s claims, Fortis does not have smart meters and as Mr. Pobran states (No Smart Meters Here Yet, Oct. 5 Capital News) he is absolutely correct that Fortis replaces meters periodically for Measurement Canada compliance, but these are not smart meters.

I would like to suggest that Anita needs to write accurate facts when writing a letter to the paper.

Dawn Bradley,

West Kelowna
