Being good to our Mother Earth has always been important to me. I was one of the first enrollees. I noticed my bill was lower. I’m just one person. Imagine if every person made (even small!) eco-conscious decisions like enrolling in EcoChoice.
As a renter, I didn’t have many options to equip my home with renewable energy. I knew it was a no-brainer to allocate 100% of my electricity to cleaner energy sources. This program provides the perfect opportunity to support the clean energy movement.
EcoChoice was the easiest decision to make – I save money on my electricity bill every month. I'm thrilled that SDG&E offers smarter energy sourcing so that renters like me have a better option that supports the transition to clean energy.
As a relatively early adopter of electric vehicle technology, I am always on the lookout for new ways to combat climate change through my eco-friendly lifestyle. Signing up for EcoChoice was a natural extension of the other steps I had already taken to go green.
Sustainability and transparency have always been at the heart of JuneShine. We donate 1% of all revenue to 1% For the Planet nonprofits. We’re on a path to eliminating plastic in our brewery and we plant trees to replace those that are used to make our six-pack cartons. And now we’ll source 100% of our electricity from renewable solar sources for both of our San Diego breweries because of EcoChoice.
Save while doing good for the environment and community
For a limited time, when you sign up for SDG&E’s EcoChoice program, SDG&E will donate $10 on your behalf just for choosing one of these three organizations.
Its vision is a zero waste, litter-free and environmentally engaged San Diego region.

How It Works
Allocate from 50% to 100% of your electricity to renewable energy when you sign up for EcoChoice®. The amount you pay depends on the % amount of renewable energy you select for each month. For example, a residential customer choosing 100% renewable energy, using an average of 500 kWh a month, saves about $2.50 on their monthly bill. When you enroll, we buy renewable energy from generating facilities built specifically for EcoChoice. Find out where our solar energy comes from with our EcoChoice Interim Pool of Energy Sources.
