Analyze your bill history. Set and review your savings and conservation goals. Take an energy survey to learn how you can save even more.

Location privacy and security

Customers who, in the past, had to provide Southern California Gas Company (SoCalGas®) with a key to their gates, leave latches unlocked or confine their dogs to allow meter reading will only need to provide entry for periodic maintenance. However, until our communications network is fully operational, access to manually read the meter for a few more months is still needed.

SoCalGas Bill Tracker Alert

Monitor your gas consumption, take steps to reduce your usage and avoid surprises in your bill. Customers with an activated Advanced Meter can sign up for Bill Tracker Alerts through My Account at You’ll receive weekly updates sent via email and/or text regarding your bill-to-date and projected next bill. Visit “Manage My Account: Manage Alerts” within My Account to sign up.

Operational efficiencies

The Advanced Meter project will enable operational savings over the life of the project, estimated to be more than double the value of our investment. Operational savings will be passed along to customers in overall rates.
