Watch this video to find out about the benefits of advanced meter and how it works.
Better manage your energy use
You will have access to more detailed information and analysis tools to help you better understand how you're using gas and where you could potentially save.
More privacy, security and accuracy
Customers who previously provided SoCalGas with a key to their gates, left latches unlocked or confined their dogs to give us access the meter each month may now only need to provide entry for periodic maintenance. No personally-identifiable information will be transmitted, and gas usage information will be encrypted for added security. Advanced meters can also help improve billing accuracy.
Help the environment
Once fully installed, the advanced metering system will also enable SoCalGas to eliminate carbon-intensive business practices such as removing 1,000 service vehicles off the road every day and eliminating close to 7 million miles driven each year to read meters. Both through customer conservation efforts and reduced vehicles off the road, we expect to reduce approximately 140,000 tons of CO2 emissions each year.
Enable future technology
In the future, advanced meters can make it even easier for you to view and manage your gas use with energy alerts via phone, text or email.
The advanced meter project will enable operational and environmental savings over the life of the project estimated to be more than double the value of our investment. These savings are passed along to customers in overall rates.
