Southern California Gas Company’s admission that smart-meters were calibrated improperly has raised the ire an LA City Council Member.

12th District Councilman Mitchell Englander says the Utility treated the complaints about smart meters malfunctioning the same way they treated customers at the beginning of the month long gas leak‚ÄĒdismissively.

“We started asking about the smart meters they said there’s absolutely no way that those could’ve triggered it, it’s just a cold winter, when in fact, now, we’re finding out that’s exactly what it was.”

Though the company finally admitted there was a problem with the calibration of the meters, according to the Orange County Register, the company stuck to its earlier excuse that the bigger bills were compounded by the cold winter.  Tom Perumean, KABC NEWS.
