Not good business

I am writing this in regards to an issue involving smart meters.

Recently in my neighbourhood (which is low income), a lot of the residents have been getting BC Hydro bills up to eight times their regular bill. BC Hydro’s explanation is that the smart meters installed two years ago are now just going online.

They also said that the meters haven’t been read in over a year due to meter readers being laid off.

When the meters do go online, the meter is read and we have to make up the difference from over a year of service. This seems to be a disgusting business practice.
