Helpful features on your SDG&E bill

We’ve recently added new features on your SDG&E bill to help 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.

Highlighted features

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.

Your maximum demand is the highest amount of electricity used at one time for the current billing period (Monthly) or for the current and prior eleven billing periods (Annual).


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 shows the following usage info to help you with your energy management habits:

  • Highest usage hour pinpointing this month’s peak.
  • Total kwH use during your Pricing Plan time periods (if applicable)
  • Time-of-use periods (if applicable)

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.
