SmartAC Last month we bought a hybrid car, today we signed up for the PG&E SmartAC Program.

When it gets hot causing electricity demand to spike PG&E may send a radio signal to our air conditioning unit and tell it to operate in SmartAC mode, cooling half the normal time. Most days we will not notice the energy saving mode but in the event that we just have to have more power there is a website to override SmartAC for the day.

The plan is to use the technology on weekdays before 6 p.m. for a maximum of six hours a day.
