Island Morning Smart Meter Technology in Summerside Mar 4, 2013 | 8:47The City of Summerside recently won a national award for all the work it's doing with smart meter technology. The meters monitor your household energy consumption and essentially talk back and forth with the Summerside Electric Utility.
