Summer doesn’t have to mean higher energy bills! Not only does summertime bring changes to the weather, but soon, SDG&E customers will see a change in how they are billed for electricity. Last year, the California Public Utilities Commission approved a new electric rate structure statewide. For SDG&E customers, this will result in a consolidation of the current 3 tier structure, down to 2 tiers.
How these changes may affect a customer’s electric bill will depend on their energy use, where they live and whether they are enrolled in a bill discount program like California Alternate Rates for Energy (CARE).
