FortisBC responds to letter

FortisBC retained Exponent Inc., Engineering and Scientific Consulting not ExponentPR.

In a letter published recently in your newspaper, there were certain statements made regarding our advanced metering project that I would like to clarify.

FortisBC recently completed two weeks of oral hearings as part of the public and transparent application and approval regulatory process the utility is going through before it can install advanced meters. Customers interested in learning more about the regulatory process, can visit www.bcuc.com.

In the letter, the author states that that FortisBC hired the public relations firm ExponentPR. That is not correct.

FortisBC retained Exponent Inc., Engineering and Scientific Consulting. Exponent Inc. authored a report that compared FortisBC’s proposed advanced meters to other wireless technologies and concluded that the proposed advanced meters are not a public health risk. A copy of this report and other information about our Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) project is available at www.fortisbc.com/ami.
