Working with SDG&E

New to SDG&E? Get the information and tools you need for stress-free project application and tracking, for new or existing properties of all sizes. 

 

If the property already already has a meter and you're doing a renovation or upgrade that significantly changes its electrical or gas power needs — for example, installing a swimming pool or upgrading the HVAC system — you'll apply for a change to existing service.

If you're working on new construction that does not have a meter and requires electric (overhead or underground) or gas line installations, you'll apply for new service.

Get a quick overview of the planning, design, and construction process for new electric and gas projects, plus tips for keeping your project on track.
