January 23, 2012 – Scraping ice and shovelling snow aren’t favourite winter activities for most people, but SaskPower is trying to change that. In an effort to have clear walkways and create a safe environment for everyone, SaskPower is calling on customers to clear a path to their power and gas meters for a chance to win a snowblower and other prizes.

“Clearing a path to the meters often requires some extra shovelling, but it really makes a big difference,” said Robert Watson, SaskPower president and CEO. “Everyone benefits because easy access to the meters allows us to gather the information we need to serve customers in a timely and accurate manner.”

Simply submit a photo of yourself clearing a path to your meters and you could win a Troy-Bilt snowblower, or a weekly prize of a Visa gift card.

“Slips, trips and falls are the leading cause of injuries to SaskPower meter readers,” said Glenda Barton, SaskPower chief safety officer. “When it comes to preventing injuries for meter readers, we count on the public to help reduce the risks they face.”
