After months of smoke and mirrors CMUD may find themselves looking for more than just an excuse for the wild swings in your water bill. They might need a lawyer.
A class action lawsuit was filed against Pacific Gas & Electric back in November. The claim, PG&E smart meters are consistently overcharging customers for electricity and natural gas.
PG&E’s “SmartMeter” project is the utility’s highly touted automated meter reading (AMR) project. The meters in California use the same technology that CMUD is using to remotely read meters.
PG&E is infamous for the lawsuit won with the help of Erin Brockovich.
