Exchanging the Gas Meter

SaskEnergy must exchange the natural gas meter from time to time to comply with Measurement Canada. We may exchange the meter to: 

  • Make sure it continues to be accurate
  • Replace a defective or broken meter 
  • Routinely maintain the meter
  • Investigate a complaint about measurement accuracy 
  • Upgrade to a newer model

Booking an Appointment

If you've received a letter, email, phone call or tag indicating we must replace the meter, please contact us to book an appointment. SaskEnergy aims to complete the meter exchange 4-12 weeks after you receive notification. To help us complete the work efficiently and safely, we ask:

  • A person 16 years of age or older are present at your premise to allow access
  • There is a clear path to the meter/equipment
  • Pets are secured indoors prior to the Service Technician arriving
