PG&E To Hold Smart Meter Briefing Tuesday, Feb. 1

Thursday, January 27, 2011

Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) will hold a SmartMeter Educational Center in City Council Chambers, 736 F St., Tuesday, Feb. 1 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

PG&E representatives will staff the event to help customers with their questions about PG&E’s SmartMeter program, billing and more.  The Educational Centers will also feature a SmartMeter demonstration board.

PG&E is deploying SmartMeter gas and electric meters in Humboldt County.  The SmartMeter program provides customers with more information about their energy usage and more rate options to help them reduce their energy use and bills. SmartMeter technology will also help the state meet its renewable energy goals and provide the foundation for a future smart grid which will make the power grid more reliable, efficient and sustainable.

For more information about PG&E’s SmartMeter program, visit or call PG&E’s 24-hour SmartMeter Hotline at 1-866-743-0263.

    Where is my tin foil. The smart meters are going to dull my high and short out my cell phone.

    Thanks for the propaganda Beth.

    Smart Meters, like everything else PG&E does, are designed to save PG&E money, not to serve the public good.

    PG&E now gets to fire all the meter readers.

    PG&E is a very gangster like organization bullying individuals and entire states with its energy monopoly.

    PG&E makes plenty of money off the public, why doesn’t it contribute a pittance back to the public buy keeping the system old fashion.

    I would like to know much more about the effects of a RF transmitter located several feet from my bedroom; and the combined effect of thousands of these things operating at once.

  4. Yeah, beth, how long have you been working for PG&E. We all know that PG&E has no problem killing people and will spend millions to cover it up. These meters are not good for you at all, and, they are bankrupting lots of people who can no longer afford their bill. Yes, everyone will say that they are accurate, but why hasn’t pge increased baseline levels?????
