Evaluation of California's Real-Time Energy Metering (RTEM) Program
Christensen Associates Energy Consulting, LLC

This report documents results of a qualitative and quantitative evaluation of the Real-Time Energy Metering (RTEM) program. The qualitative evaluation was designed to develop “lessons learned” about the metering technologies, the installation process, the communication of information to customers, and customers’ perception and use of the timely information on their energy usage patterns. The quantitative evaluation was designed to measure any changes in customers’ energy consumption that can be attributed to the installation of the meters, the availability of new information on their energy usage patterns, and/or the conversion to a TOU price structure. Analyses were conducted on metered usage data for each of the three investor-owned utilities in the state, Southern California Edison (SCE), Pacific Gas & Electric (PG&E), and San Diego Gas and Electric (SDG&E).
