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.
