San Diego Gas & Electric (SDG&E) says that a total of nine types of home area network (HAN) devices are now available to its customers. Six additional devices that are compatible with SDG&E smart meters have been added to the list.

HAN devices display information on how much energy a home or business is using in near-real time and help identify high energy-use appliances. According to SDG&E, its customers can view their energy use on the devices themselves, smartphone apps or computers.

SDG&E says it has worked with the manufacturers to set up discounts on each device exclusively for the utility's customers. Seven third-party in-home displays and two programmable communicating thermostats are available, and all devices have been tested and validated for smart meter compatibility, the utility notes.
