Helpful new features on your SDG&E bill
Starting in summer 2018, new features on your SDG&E bill will make it easier to understand and manage your energy use. These improvements include your electricity dashboard, usage history and other information at a glance, as highlighted below and shown in the sample bills.
Usage history bar graphs show how your current energy use compares with the previous month and the same month a year ago. This can help you track your energy-saving efforts.
Payment options include brief descriptions with contact information so you can choose the most convenient way to pay your bill each month.
Breakdown of current charges features a circular chart summarizing the main parts of your energy bill, followed by an itemized list.
Your electricity dashboard focuses on your power use for the current billing period in three ways:
- Average use per hour graphed over a 24-hour period.
- Average cost per kilowatt-hour (kWh) for the month.
- Highest usage hour pinpointing this month’s peak.
Time of Use (TOU) bills will display your electricity use by time periods, which may help you take advantage of lower-priced (off-peak, super off-peak) hours. You may also see a table with price comparisons for one-year no-risk pricing. Learn more about your choice of TOU plans.
