The Saskatchewan government says its Crown utility has maintained customer confidence in the wake of a failed smart-meter program that led to 10 of the devices overheating and melting. Last summer, the province ordered the utility to remove more than 100-thousand of the newer models of smart meters that had been installed after reports of fires related to the devices.

(Boyd's comments come as Sask-Power releases its annual report.)
