That's great! It would be so much easier if every utility allowed it. Would save us all a lot of cost
and give the utility "smarter users"
Just to make absolutely certain ... there is
an upfront "cost" to modifying the system to accept a 2nd meter because dual-meter adapters are now a no-no: a new breaker in main panel, 2nd meter socket, routing from that new breaker to 2nd meter socket, then to EVSE, etc.. But the actual 2nd meter is free and placed by SMUD into the socket at no additional cost, and there's no monthly meter charge on the utility bill for the second meter. Still a good deal, IMO.
