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 will be adding square footage, changing the footprint, or increasing heights be aware of potential encroachments to SDG&E facilities or easements.

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.

If you will be adding square footage, changing the footprint, or increasing heights be aware of potential encroachments to SDG&E facilities or easements.
