New Electric Vehicle Program and Rate Structure

A new electric vehicle program and rate structure have been announced by SDG&E.  Our partners at SDG&E want to keep San Diegans in the loop about important new developments.

Pilot program authorizes 3,500 electric vehicle chargers at 350 sites

San Diego Gas & Electric’s (SDG&E) Electric Vehicle Grid-Integration pilot project, received the “green light” to own and install thousands of electric vehicle (EV) charging stations at businesses and multi-family communities, including in underserved neighborhoods, throughout San Diego and south Orange Counties.

Rates Are Changing

Starting in September last year, San Diego Gas & Electric (SDG&E) began to transition its customers to a new electric rate structure approved by the California Public Utilities Commission. A new three-tier electric rate structure replaced the previous four-tier structure. Starting in March 2016, these changes will continue as the new electric rate structure will be further reduced to two tiers. “We want people to understand the changes to how they are billed and also how they can manage their energy costs.” - Caroline Winn, chief energy delivery officer at SDG&E SDG&E customers can take advantage of a number of tools to help manage energy costs such as:
