Direct Access (DA) was suspended in September 2001. Under the suspension, existing DA customers could continue in the program, but no new customers were eligible. In October 2009, a new law provided for a limited re-opening of DA that SDG&E implemented in April 2010. The limited re-opening is available only for non-residential customers and the amount of customer usage that can transfer to DA is capped.
Update May 15, 2013
The SDG&E Total Load Allowance, 3,562 GWh, is fully subscribed.
SDG&Ewill not be accepting 6-Month Notices to Transfer to Direct Access until the next DA enrollment period which will begin on Monday, April 8, 2013 at 9:00 am PDT. Customers or their authorized agents may submit Six Month Notices during the five (5) business days beginning April 8th and ending Friday, April 12, 2013 at 5 pm PDT.
