Natural gas consumers could pay more than $1 billion to put radio-controlled smart meters on their homes, even though an agency judge has ruled that the proposal by Southern California Gas Co. is a money loser. The Los Angeles company, which serves 20.5 million people from south of Fresno to the Mexican border, says it needs the meters so customers can get up-to-the-minute information about how much natural gas they use to run furnaces, water heaters and stoves. "That gives customers a chance to adjust usage . . . such as putting on a sweater and tightly closing windows," said Michelle Mueller, vice president for customer operations at SoCalGas, a unit of Sempra Energy of San Diego.

Sempra Energy, the San Diego-based parent of Southern California Gas and San Diego Gas & Electric, said it had received the necessary land-use and environmental permits from the Mexican government to begin construction on a liquefied natural gas terminal in Baja California. The $600-million facility would be the first LNG terminal on the West Coast and would send gas to the California market as well as fuel electricity-generating stations in Baja. Construction is to begin next year.

Dynegy Inc. and NRG Energy Inc. on Thursday won the California Energy Commission's approval to build two generators at an El Segundo power plant. The 630-megawatt expansion will replace two gas turbines that the companies shut down because they were too costly to operate, said David Byford, a Dynegy spokesman. The project will take four years to complete once construction begins, he said. "Before we begin construction, we would need to enter a long-term contract," Byford said.
