Blog #42 - Smart Meters to be Installed in Fairfax

SMART METERS – Did you receive a letter from PG&E about installation of a Smart Meter at your address?

Some Fairfax residents have received letters stating that meters would be installed in the next few weeks. It is possible to contact PG&E at the number provided in the notification letter, 1-866-743-0263 and to be placed on a “delayed action until further notice” list.

The Town Council discussed this issue at length at the meeting on July 7, 2010 and staff is drafting an ordinance for their consideration to address the installation of Smart Meters in Fairfax. Information about Smart Meters was provided by the Town Manager in Blog #32 posted on June 2, 2010. The staff report on Smart Meters is on the Town Web site as part of the Town Council packet for the July 7, 2010 meeting.

More information is available from PG&E at their Web site at www.pge.com/smartmeter or at www.turn.org, for a utility reform group’s point of view.
