Whether your meters are located inside or outside, ensure a clear line-of-sight to your electric and water meter by removing clotheslines, vegetation and other obstructions.
ENMAX Power Corporation currently reads approximately 475,000 electricity meters and 360,000 water meters every month in Calgary. Electricity meters are generally located wherever the power lines enter your house and can be either inside or outside a building. It's important to get the most accurate reads from your meter to ensure you are being billed for your actual consumption. Otherwise we have to estimate your usage, which can affect your bill. So providing safe access to your meter for our team of meter readers is essential to providing you with the best service possible.
ENMAX Power Meter Reading attempts to read your meter every month, two days on either side of your scheduled read date.
ENMAX Power supplies all its meter readers with a specified uniform. Our field staff will be wearing a combination of khaki shirts, shorts/trousers with bright red jackets or vests and all of our clothing is embroidered with the ENMAX logo. Every employee is also required to carry ENMAX identification which you can ask to see at any time when the meter reader enters your premises.
The city bylaws and the terms and conditions on your electrical contract state that access to your electrical meter must be provided. That being said, ENMAX Power meter readers will always respect your privacy and property when obtaining your meter's reading.
If you have a pet in your yard you can call the ENMAX Power Meter Reading department at 403-514-3830 and let us know. This will allow us to put a note onto the meter reader's handheld device so the meter reader is aware of pets on your property. Not only will this keep our meter reader safe from a potential dog bite but the meter reader will be especially alert to not let your pet out of your yard.
ENMAX Power meter readers read the electric and waters located on property in Calgary, Red Deer, Ponoka, Cardston, Fort MacLeod and Crowsnest Pass.
If you learn to read your electric meter and submit your own readings, it will result in more accurate readings than if we estimate your consumption. You can send a clear photo of your meter to
firstname.lastname@example.org or you can submit a meter reading through our online form.
