CPUC: PG&E Smart Meters Stay Installed

California's Public Utilities Commission has denied the City and County of San Francisco (CCSF) attempt to halt Pacific Gas and Electric Company's installation of smart meters in the PG&E service area. According to CPUC, "CCSF has not provided new facts that would warrant the suspension of PG&E's SmartMeter program. Issues concerning service quality and program costs already have had, currently have, or will likely have procedural homes. This proceeding should be closed."

Part of the findings by CPUC were that San Francisco's allegation of "hundreds of [consumer] complaints" amounted to a complaint rate of less than 0.02% on nearly 6 million PG&E smart meter installations, well within the political tolerance levels of the CPUC commissioners in denying the CCSF petition to halt PG&E smart meter installation.

Here in San Diego, smart meter installation continues with San Diego Gas and Electric Company's hope to introduce dynamic pricing in its PeakShift at Work/ PeakShift at Home business hour rate hikes for small business and residential power customers. If PSW/PSH is approved for SDG&E, then those customers will be priced out of the daytime business hour market in favor of lower off-peak evening and weekend power usage. This will make more power available for SDG&E's larger industrial-sized clients during the business week, even though many of these clients are installing their own solar panels to reduce their own power expenses. At the same time, SDG&E alternative power sources in the Imperial Valley are not projected in SDG&E testimony to provide sufficient power via the Sunrise Powerlink or otherwise make any significant difference in SDG&E's supply of electricity during local peak demand periods to eliminate the need for the requested dynamic rate hikes.
