Smart Meters Investigation

Sponsored by:

Sacramento, CA — The California Public Utilities Commission plans to investigate complaints about PG&E’s new Smart Meters.

According to the Associated Press, many customers are blaming the digital meters for higher energy bills.

Customers have complained that their gas and electric bills have soared after the devices were installed. PG&E has said that the meters are accurate and blames the higher bills on hot weather conditions this past summer and rate increases.

The California Public Utilities Commission plans to name a consultant later this week to investigate the accuracy of the meters.
