Conforming Meter List

The Market Rules require each metering installation that is used for settlement purposes in the IESO-administered markets to contain meters that are of a type described on the list of conforming meters established by the IESO.

The Conforming Meter List is the list of meters that are permitted to be used as the "main" or "alternate" meter, as the case may be, in metering installations provided that all applicable conditions of acceptance as noted are met in respect of a given meter. The IESO standard Wholesale Revenue Metering Standard - Hardware contains a description of the functions for each of the "main" and "alternate" meters that must form part of a metering installation, and the Market Rules and the policies and standards established by the IESO, including the IESO standard Wholesale Revenue Metering Standard Hardware, describe the accuracy and other requirements for meters and metering installations.

In addition to other requirements, the Meters included on the list have been sample tested by the IESO to verify that the meters are by design compatible with the IESO's metering communication facilities and software when the conditions of acceptance noted are met.

Metered Market Participants and Metering Service Providers are solely responsible for ensuring that their metering installations comply in all respects with the applicable provisions of the Market Rules and of any policy or standard established by the IESO pursuant to the Market Rules, including as to sealing by an accredited meter verifier and as to containing meters obtained from a manufacturer that has obtained approval of type from Measurement Canada.

Inclusion of a meter on the Conforming Meter List attached does not represent or warrant that any individual meter is accurate or complies fully with the requirements of the Market Rules or of any such policy or standard. The IESO reserves the right to:

  • refuse registration of a metering installation in the event of non-compliance with the Market Rules or any such policy or standard; and

  • take such other action as may be permitted by the Market Rules in respect of a non-compliant metering installation

even if the metering installation contains meters that are on the list attached.

Below for information purposes only and as a convenience for Metered Market Participants and Metering Service Providers, is a list of contact information for manufacturers or suppliers of meters contained on the Conforming Meter List.
