PG&E Applying for Half Billion to Replace Aging Gas Meters- Electric Next?

We told you smart meters don’t last long and now the bill has come due…
Nina B. of reports: PG&E wants $498 million to replace the AMI modules on the Smart gas meters because the modules are “approaching the end of their expected useful life,”  according to PG&E’s notice in the Monterey County Herald. PG&E filed Application A.24-03-011,  March 14.
The notice also states “Starting in 2027, further costs will be included in the General Rate Case process.” It’s unclear if they mean AMI/Smart Meter costs. If PG&E means to replace the electric Smart Meters, the costs will be astronomical.
Does PG&E expect those who don’t have Smart Meters to pay these costs? Probably. Stay tuned.
