Residents concerned about PG&E’s SmartMeter program can ask questions at several events in Nipomo and San Luis Obispo over the next week.
An educational center will be open at 552 W. Tefft St. in Nipomo from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on March 26, 27, and 30.
An open house will also be held on March 30 in the community room of the San Luis Obispo City-County Library at 995 Palm St. PG&E representatives will be available to answer questions about the SmartMeter program technology and rate options.
PG&E has installed 40,000 SmartMeters in San Luis Obispo County and expects to have the county covered by the end of 2012.
Statewide, some 7.7 million have been installed out of 10 million planned by PG&E.
