This will help them become better managers of their usage, he explained. Other benefits he described are: reading by radio frequency without access to customer property; automatic alerts as to power outages and bet- ter pinpointing for repair crews; faster start-ups for move-ins; better billing and analysis for customers; proactive alerts when usage puts customers in a more expensive en- ergy tier. Ultimately, the meters will allow solar customers to see power return to the grid. "That will be really im- portant because 40% of the nation's solar installations are in Northern Califomia," said DiCaminada. He pointed out that a typical electric vehicle charge is roughly equal to the load of a large home on a hot day. In follow-up after the presen- tation, PG&E did not wish to specu- late how rates might ultimately be set for electric vehicle owners, but that issue will be undertaken by the PUC. Usage rates for homes with solar will be established in the next few months. Also addressed were rumors or misunderstandings about the SmartMeters. The radio frequency levels are far below levels of a cell phone or microphone. The World Health Organization has done an in-depth review and concluded there are no adverse health effects from the 45-second daily transmis- sions. There are also no fire risks. The new technology does not mon- itor which appliance is being used in the home, nor will service dis- connections be linked to SmartMe- ters. DiCaminada emphasized that the two-way information capabili- ties would not compromise custom- er privacy and that there are multiple layers of security. He says testing bears out that 99% of the devices are working properly. Accompanying DiCaminada was Joe Horak, Major Accounts Manag- er and Kelli Nevin, Government Re- lations Representative. He invited them to provide contact informa- tion if they want to better under- stand their SmartMeters. DiCarninada agreed with some au- dience members that the roll-out of the program could have been better communicated and that more infor- mation would give the public a bet- ter comfort level. He offered that the City of Cloverdale could re- quest an answer center to improve \ the communications process. He pledged to do a better job going for- ward in getting information to the public. Follow-up at PG&E offices on questions about loss of meter read- ers from council and the public con- firmed that 80% of the former readers have been placed within PG&E and that about 20% had tak- en retirement. Councilman Wolter asked for and received confirma- tion that the website for customers is password protected. Councilmember Jessalee Ray- mond wanted to know if informa- tion on the installations has gone out. She was told that letters were sent and that the power company would welcome the opportunity to hold an open house to answer ques- tions in Cloverdale, to which they would bring experts in radio fre- quency and the SmartMeter tech- nology. "We underestimated the reaction [and concerns from the public]," DiCaminada added. Mayor Russell expressed that "people are less worried about their own control than PG&E's control and a 'big brother' perception of the SmartMeter capabilities." DiCarni- nada explained that there is a pro- gram where customers can get a different rate on their air condition- ing use if they use a special pro- gram to cycle their air conditioner. That program involves a PG&E in- stalled thermostat that allows PG&E to control cycling. As for SmartMeter, he said it is "about PG&E trying to get better at identi- fying and repairing outages. PG&E's mission is not changing. Privacy is a big issue with us and the PUC." il We V the Season plan your Christmas Party can accommodate 20-60 guests in our Restaurant or the Call "Packard" Room. now for best dates & rates, t 707-857-4343 Ask for Jenny or Terry. ~~,.~-", Highway 101 .~ ~" ~. ~i~i!+~ii ~~ Canyon Road Exit ~ ~'~ ~" N~Lto the Geyserville Inn Bill a Debbie Andrew Call your local loan specialist. 20+ years experience in home lending.
