Breaking Down Your Electric Charges
Ever wonder exactly what you’re paying for? Energy bills can be complicated. Learn more about the different charges that go into your monthly energy bill: Electric Generation, Electric Delivery and State Taxes & Other.
Your Community Choice Aggregator purchases or generates your electricity.
Electric Generation is the charge for electricity used in your home or business. Your electricity is bought or generated by your Community Choice Aggregator (CCA). The Electric Generation charge from your CCA is included on your SDG&E bill.
Two CCA providers serve customers within SDG&E’s service territory: Clean Energy Alliance (CEA) and San Diego Community Power (SDCP). Your CCA is listed under Electric Generation in My Account and the mobile app.
SDG&E delivers electricity to power your home or business.
Electric Delivery is the charge for delivering electricity to your location. This charge also includes billing, customer care services and maintaining and modernizing infrastructure.
SDG&E works hard to develop the latest technologies to be able to keep delivering power across the region that’s clean, safe and reliable.
