Determining the model

Compteur électronique
  1. Find the manufacturer’s name

    In most cases, the name of the manufacturer can be found above the screen. The meters are generally made by Landis+Gyr, Elster, General Electric (GE) and Itron.

  2. Find the identification number

    If the number starts with:

    • G4, G7, G8 or G9, the meter is communicating.
    • X, the meter is non-communicating.
    • Any other alphanumeric characters, it’s an old-generation meter. Hydro-Québec will contact you when it’s time to install a communicating meter.
  3. Determine the meter model

    Using the first alphanumeric characters of the identification number, identify the model from the list below.

Below are the main displays and information that appear at regular intervals on the screen.

Display test

This screen shows that the liquid crystal display is working properly. When the 8s are displayed properly, the LCD is working.

Energy consumed

This screen displays the letters LIV for énergie livrée (energy delivered), indicating the total number of kilowatthours (kWh) measured by the meter. The meter displays kWh as a running total, much like how a car odometer displays a running total of the distance travelled. In the image, you can see the total amount of energy consumed is 5 kWh.

When the meter is first installed, it may display a value other than 0. If this is the case, the installer will note the value and it will be subtracted from your next reading so that your bill reflects your actual consumption for the period in question.

Real power

This screen displays the letters DMW for demande en watts (watt demand) and indicates the highest power demand (in kW) measured by the meter during a consumption period.

When the contract is for a rate with billed power demand, this value is reset to 0 at the start of each consumption period.

This data is used only for customers whose power demand is billed.

Apparent power

This screen indicates the highest power demand (in kVA) measured by the meter during a consumption period.

When the contract is for a rate with billed power demand, this value is reset to 0 at the start of each consumption period.

This data is used only for customers whose power demand is billed.

Energy consumed – higher price

This screen, which displays the letters LHT, indicates the total number of kilowatthours (kWh) measured by the meter, which are then billed at the higher of the two Rate DT prices. The meter displays kWh as a running total, much like how a car odometer displays a running total of the distance travelled. In the image, you can see the total amount of energy consumed is 4 kWh.

When the meter is first installed, it may display a value other than 0. If this is the case, the installer will note the value and it will be subtracted from your next reading so that your bill reflects your actual consumption for the period in question.

Energy consumed – lower price

The screen, which displays the letters LBT, indicates the total number of kilowatthours (kWh) measured by the meter, which are then billed at the lower of the two Rate DT prices. The meter displays kWh as a running total, much like how a car odometer displays a running total of the distance travelled. In the image, you can see the total amount of energy consumed is 7 kWh.

When the contract is for a rate with billed power demand, this value is reset to 0 at the start of each consumption period.

This data is used only for customers whose power demand is billed.

Apparent power

This screen indicates the highest power demand (in kVA) measured by the meter during a consumption period.

When the contract is for a rate with billed power demand, this value is reset to 0 at the start of each consumption period.

This data is used only for customers whose power demand is billed.

Cumulative real power

This display shows the cumulative real power for previous billing periods.

Cumulative apparent power

This display shows the cumulative apparent power for previous billing periods.

Energy injected

This screen indicates information for energy producers (clients enrolled in the net metering option).

Number of resets

This data shows the number of times Hydro-Québec has reset the power demand indicator when taking a meter reading.

Network information

Hydro-Québec uses this information to manage the advanced metering infrastructure system.

Power indicator

This indicator appears on every screen. The faster the little square flashes, the higher the consumption.

Below are the main displays and information that appear at regular intervals on the screen.

Display test

This screen shows that the liquid crystal display is working properly.

Energy consumed

This screen shows the total number of kilowatthours (kWh) measured by the meter. The meter displays kWh as a running total, much like how a car odometer displays a running total of the distance travelled. In the image, you can see the total amount of energy consumed is 11 kWh.

When the meter is first installed, it may display a value other than 0. If this is the case, the installer will note the value and it will be subtracted from your next reading so that your bill reflects your actual consumption for the period in question.

Energy consumed – higher price

This screen indicates the total number of kilowatthours (kWh) billed at the higher of the two Rate DT prices. The meter displays kWh as a running total, much like how a car odometer displays a running total of the distance travelled. In the image, you can see the total amount of energy consumed is 1 kWh.

When the meter is first installed, it may display a value other than 0. If this is the case, the installer will note the value and it will be subtracted from your next reading so that your bill reflects your actual consumption for the period in question.

Energy consumed – lower price

This screen indicates the total number of kilowatthours (kWh) billed at the lower of the two Rate DT prices. The meter displays kWh as a running total, much like how a car odometer displays a running total of the distance travelled. In the image, you can see the total amount of energy consumed is 1 kWh.
