SmartAC™ Program: Information for Landlords and Property Managers

You and your tenants have the opportunity to help to prevent power interruptions in case of a local or state energy supply emergency.

If your tenant opts to participate in the SmartAC program they will need your written consent (PDF, 219 KB). They will need to have this form authorized by you and forward it to PG&E. PG&E will contact your tenants directly to arrange access.
