Share My Data is the next generation of the Green Button Connect My Data® tool. Share My Data enables you to share your energy usage with approved third-party companies. There are two ways to share data with a company. You can share your data when you register with a third-party company, or you can authorize a company to access your data using your PG&E online account.
Some companies have integrated the authorization process into their websites, registration and other online processes. Oftentimes, these companies will provide a link so you can share your PG&E data with them directly. You will be redirected to your PG&E online account, and once you’ve completed the required steps within your account, you’ll automatically be redirected back to the company’s website.
How to make changes to an existing authorization
You can view any existing authorizations that you've already made in this screen. Use the pencil icon to modify the details of the authorization (what's being shared, duration, etc.) or use the 'X' icon to cancel or delete an authorization. You're not able to add an additional Service ID to an existing authorization. You must cancel the existing authorization and create a new one.
Note: You may be redirected to the third-party webpage before being asked to complete the authorization.
From this page, you will provide the details as to what data you want to release and choose the individual sets of data to release to an approved company.
Next, you will want to select the service IDs associated with your account that you would like to share. As with the data sets, you can choose to Select All, or pick and choose which service IDs you'd like to share.
After selecting the Service IDs, you will need to identify the duration of the authorization. You can choose to share your data indefinitely, or utilize the calendar to define the duration of the authorization. Note that you can always modify the duration in the future.
Click 'Submit' when you're done defining the details of the authorization.Download Share My Data Platform Terms and Conditions (PDF, 175 KB)
