Seskeha/ August 9, 2016

On June 20, 2016 the Mohawk Council of Akwesasne passed MCR 2016/2017 #069 approving Hydro Quebec to proceed with the installation of the “Next Generation Meters” in the Districts of Kana:takon and Tsi Snaihne.

As a result of the approval; Hydro Quebec will procced with replacing the electrical meter on your home. This work is expected to occur August 15-19, 2016 between 8AM and 5PM. The meters currently installed on your home are no longer available and need to be replaced.

The new meters are known as “Next Generation Meters”. They will run on a router system and be more efficient than the current meters.

The meters will be replaced at no cost to you but should you refuse the new meter, in the future there will be a cost to have it replaced.

During the changeover, the Hydro Quebec installer will be accompanied by an Akwesasne community member who will communicate with you and answer any questions, the installation should take less than 10 minutes.

Should you have any questions or concerns, please contact Jerry McDonald at 613-575-2250 ext. 2389 at the Akwesasne Hydro Quebec Office.
