SmartMeter™ enabled tools allow you to see exactly how you’re using energy so you can make informed decisions that help you reduce your monthly bill. In fact, you’ll have more control than ever before.
|More Reliable Service |
SmartMeter™ provides for two-way communication between PG&E and the grid allowing us to quickly identify outages and resolve other services problems – in many cases, without a visit to your home or business.
|See Your Daily Energy Use |
It’s as easy as going online to see a detailed history of your energy usage and costs, up to the previous day. You can view hourly electric and daily gas and electric consumption, and then compare your usage to last week, or even last year - valuable information you can use to make informed energy choices.

|Get Alerts About Your Usage |

|Better Usage of Renewable Power |
By better connecting us with renewable energy resources, SmartMeter™ helps us better manage all sources of power. The Smart Grid can use energy from solar and wind resources the same way it uses energy from traditional power plants.
|Smart Devices and Smart Homes |
If you opt in to the Home Area Network (HAN) in the future, your SmartMeter™ could connect to smart devices in your home so they can automatically respond to pricing signals from the grid.
