The Electric Program Investment Charge (EPIC) program will enable PG&E to work with the other California investor-owned utilities and the California Energy Commission to develop Smart Grid technology demonstration and deployment programs. In 2012, PG&E proposed its plan to the California Public Utilities Commission to use $49 million to fund 26 electricity projects.
Our project initiatives include:
- Demonstrating energy storage technologies for renewables integration, integrating and analyzing large datasets to optimize asset risk management
- Advancing the grid operations center capabilities for the future
- Demonstrating potential use of Electric Vehicles as a resource to improve grid power quality and reduce customer outages
- Leveraging the AMI technology platform to improve customer service and offerings
