SmartDay guidelines

PG&E calls SmartDays on especially hot days when the demand for electricity can reach an extreme level.

  • No more than 15 SmartDays are called each year. SmartDays may be called on weekends or holidays, if electricity demand peaks.
  • A courtesy SmartDay notification may be sent by phone, email or text the day before a SmartDay.
    Update how you would like to be notified
  • Shift or reduce your electricity use from 2-7 p.m., when SmartDays are called.
