New SmartMeters like these may be more efficient over all, but rates pegged to market demand may give some customers a nasty surprise.
PG&E sent out letters to Marina residents on Tuesday, notifying them of the upcoming change.
Critics of the SmartMeters question the accuracy and safety of the devices.
PG&E has a series of informational hearings scheduled in the near future for Marina residents to voice any questions or concerns pertaining to the new meters.
PG&E's informational meetings for Marina residents will be held tonight, Tuesday through next Thursday, and Jan. 29 at 1593 North Point St. in San Francisco, with each meeting scheduled to last from 4 to 7 p.m.
