On Reuters.com, November 4 2009

California utility Pacific Gas and Electric is installing smart meters at a rate of 13,000 units a day and aims to have 10 million of the meters deployed by 2012, Kevin Dasso, senior director of strategy and regulation at the utility, said on Wednesday.

Dasso, who was speaking at an industry event, estimated the utility will have installed 3 million smart meters by the end of this year.

The new meters will give the utility the ability to connect and disconnect meters remotely, which PG&E has said will cut vehicle miles by its workers.
