SDG&E Links Smart Meters to Google Gadget

San Diego Gas & Electric says it is one of eight utilities in the United States, India, and Canada that will enable customers to access their daily energy use online by using Google’s PowerMeter gadget. When connected to a utility-installed smart meter, the PowerMeter displays personal electricity consumption data on home computers. SDG&E began installing smart meters last year, and plans to roll out the PowerMeter service in a partnership with Google later this year. SDG&E is a regulated public utility owned by San Diego’s Sempra Energy (NYSE: SRE).
