When you sign up for the PG&E SmartAC program, we install a free SmartAC device on your air conditioner (AC) and give you $50 for participating. In case of an energy shortage from May 1 - October 31, we send a signal to your SmartAC device directing your AC to run at a lower capacity. Understand how the program works.
Signing up is easy, costs nothing and pays you a reward. You also help prevent outages when the electrical grid is typically under the most strain. We'll provide free technical support as long as you’re enrolled in the program. Check your eligibility.
The SmartAC device automatically does all the work. There’s nothing you need to remember. If a SmartAC event is called at a time that's inconvenient for you, you can easily return your AC to its normal settings. You can also receive Event Day notifications on your smartphone via IFTTT.
