PG&E registration process begins here
This is the last Dr Power screen before you are handed off to the PG&E website.
You need to tell PG&E to share your smart meter data with Dr Power. First step is to log into your PG&E account. Note that HEA never gets access to your PG&E credentials.
This selection allows Dr Power to do a complete analysis and send you monthly updates on your progress.
Review the details, then scroll to the bottom of the page.
Some users have multiple homes. If so make sure you select the one you want us to analyze.
Then check the box at the bottom.
Next you'll be transferred back to Dr Power from PG&E's site.
This should take less than a minute.
But if there's a delay in this process feel free to close the app and come back later.
This is the first screen you'll see as Dr Power analyzes your electric use. Follow the screens to learn more.
Before you can reduce your energy use you first need to understand it. Everyone's home is different, so the first thing Dr Power does is educate you about your specific energy use.
That's the end of the PG&E registration flow.
SCE registration process begins here
This is the last Dr Power screen before you are handed off to the SCE website.

SDG&E Green Button Connect not yet supported for Dr Power
HEA's Dr Power app is next in the queue for integration with SDG&E's new OAuth-based Green Button Connect service. We expect the integration to be complete within the next few months.
Until then, we suggest logging into your SDG&E account and trying out our "Unplug Stuff" service, which is integrated to SDG&E's site through their initial FTP-based service. Then we'll automatically let you know when Dr Power is supported for your utility.
To try out HEA's Unplug Stuff service, click on the My Energy tab, and then "Green Button Connect My Data"
Click the "Add a New Tool or Service" button to see a list of supported tools.
Scroll down until you see Unplug Stuff, then click "Enroll in Unplug Stuff".
After we receive your data from SDG&E you will receive an email from firstname.lastname@example.org with instructions to view the results of our analysis.
When Dr Power is integrated we will send you an invitation to try it out.
