NTS has been selected by PG&E to provide testing of HAN (Home Area Network) devices for use with PG&E’s SmartMeters™. PG&E customers can now connect to their SmartMeters to provide real-time energy use in their homes using ZigBee Smart Energy . PG&E has previously been working with device manufacturers directly to validate their devices work with the home and business area networks (HANs/BANs) of their customers.
