Rising energy costs, primarily due to unprecedented natural gas market conditions nationally, are straining many Southern California households. At SDG&E, we hear your concerns and fully understand the difficulties of the situation.
Having a better grasp of what goes into your bills may not ease the burden of paying them. But as our customer, you deserve to know what you are paying for, why and have more information about future decisions that can impact energy pricing.
We also want to make sure we provide clear information on available resources and assistance programs, including payment arrangements and monthly discount programs, along with the steps we’re taking to help make energy bills more affordable. LEARN MORE
2023 Energy Rates and Who Sets Them
Aside from weather, usage and energy market conditions, your energy bill is impacted by regulatory proceedings at the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC). SDG&E, alongside consumer advocates and other key stakeholders, participates in numerous CPUC proceedings throughout the year. We are committed to keeping you up to date on those proceedings that could affect what you pay for energy.
2024-2027 Electric and Gas Budget Proposal
As SDG&E looks ahead to what it will take to create a clean energy future and protect our customers from climate threats, we built our general rate case for the first time around meeting regional and statewide goals for carbon neutrality, in addition to reinforcing the safety and reliability of our electric and gas systems.
What goes into an SDG&E bill and why are rates higher?
Supplying power to the community today includes the cost of energy production, delivering that energy, plus the costs of building and maintaining infrastructure that ensures clean, safe, and reliable energy in the future.
What valuable benefits do customers receive?
It’s our responsibility to make sure the energy you count on to run your home or business is there when you need it.
Our mission is to be the cleanest, safest, most reliable energy infrastructure company in America and we’re making progress on building the energy grid of the future.
Building for a better future every day
Our commitment to sustainability informs everything we do.
California is a leader in producing renewable energy, adopting rooftop solar and switching to electric vehicles. And we’re proud to work with key stakeholders to further strengthen California’s position as an energy pioneer — for the benefit of everyone.
What’s being done to make bills more affordable?
We’re always aggressively working to reduce the energy cost burden on SDG&E customers while continuing the pursuit of California’s ambitious climate goals.
There are no quick fixes for lowering the cost of energy. But we do have programs for those needing assistance.
