San Diego Gas & Electric Customers Can Opt to Forgo Smart Meters At A Cost.

San Diego Gas & Electric Smart Meter

State of California regulators are close to providing a way for San Diego-area utility customers to opt out of wireless "smart meters" that relay detailed information about home electricity use by radio frequency to the local power company. Since 2008 San Diego Gas 7 electric has gradually swapped out more than 1.3 million dial spinning analog electricity meters across San Diego and Southern Orange counties with new digital equipment that intermittently transmits data to utility computer servers. The utility network of wireless equipment does away with meter readers and holds out the promise of helping the public better understand how they are using electricity and eventually how they might save power and money.

As soon as this summer, San Diego Gas & Electric intends to use smart meter data to reward customers who cut back when demand threaten to outstrip supply on hot days. Not everyone has embraced the home electric meter upgrade. A small group has said that they feel these meter are an invasion of privacy, and the data can be used against them and other San Diego Gas & Electric customers. Also, one customer has experience headaches,dizziness, nauseousness due to these meters. If you choose to opt out there is a cost, to replace the smart meter with the old analog meter it is approximately $75.00 plus an additional $10.00 every month.

Smart homeowners would want to know how their use of electricity affects them. Just turning up the temperature on the Central AC could save you $$$$
