CMUD Should Brace For Lawsuits

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.
