The smart meters are an essential investment in helping us modernize our electricity system, and have helped us meet customer needs by enabling tools that can help save energy and money. We also look at a customer at Colwood on Vancouver Island who found a way to save the fire department $1,500 a year – all because of light bulbs. And we've reached a milestone at the Site C worker lodge with 1,200 rooms now open.

Ever wonder why birds can sit on power lines? Birds have the advantage of flight which allows them to land on lines without completing the circuit. Electricity requires a complete path to flow, and since birds are not contacting the ground while touching the line, there is no exit for the electricity which allows them to sit safely on the lines.
