Why should you get a smart meter?

The SmartMeterâ„¢ system allows you to view your hourly electric and daily gas energy usage data. So now you can easily find out exactly how much energy you are using over the course of the day, week, or month-valuable information you can use to make smarter energy choices. Just go to MyAccount any time to get a detailed picture of your usage.*

*If your SmartMeterâ„¢ gas or electric meter has recently been installed, please note that it typically takes one to two billing cycles for PG&E to establish a connection between your meter and our secure wireless data transmission system. Until this connection has been established, a PG&E meter reader will continue to read the meter on a monthly basis.
