Electric Program Investment Charge

About Us

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
