This is interesting because the month after my smart meter was installed I noticed a big jump in my bill. I just paid it, didn't complain. Maybe I should have.

my bill doubled once the smart meter was installed. I complained to PG&E and they said that it was completely accurate and that we just used more electricity without knowing it.

I have not had any problems with my smart meter. And the charges seem accurate. I was just wondering if we should be getting a discount now that pg&e does not have people coming to the house to read the meters.

Who are you kidding! Tiered rates are ripping off the consumers more then faulty meters!

If this is really of such concern, other then political grandstanding for November's elections, then why isn't the Department of Weights and Measures require to certify annually that all such measuring devices, meters, are accurate?

Emmmmmmmmmmmmmmm?
