Learn about SmartAC

The SmartAC program is voluntary and there’s no penalty for non-participation. The program helps prevent power interruptions. On hot summer days when demand increases because thousands of customers are using their air conditioning units, PG&E may remotely activate SmartAC devices in order to help maintain adequate power supplies and avoid power interruptions.

The SmartAC program benefits include:

  • Free AC checkup
  • A $50 check after installation
  • Free technical support as long as you are in the program
  • Maintaining control over your comfort and participation with the ability to opt out at any time
  • Helping prevent summer power interruptions while staying comfortable
