In February, the provincial government announced Power Smart meters "will be installed in every home in British Columbia by 2012" giving "families new information and control over their power consumption." And it looks like BC Hydro Corp. is continuing to work toward meeting that commitment. Today, the corporation quietly announced it's looking to hire an external advisor to ensure its smart metering infrastructure program is "completed on time and within budget," delivering "the functionality that it is meant to deliver." The advisor will report directly to BC Hydro chairman Mossadiq Umedaly. The deadline to submit a bid for that work is July 15 - just 13 days from now.
