Residential customers in the cities of Chula Vista, Encinitas, Imperial Beach, La Mesa, and San Diego were enrolled in SDCP service in 2022. Solar or Net Energy Metering (NEM) customers in these areas were enrolled at the time of their SDG&E annual true up between February 2022 and January 2023.
Customers in National City and the unincorporated areas of San Diego County will start receiving our renewable energy on their meter read date in April 2023. NEM customers in these areas will begin enrollment in SDCP service at the time of their SDG&E annual true up between April 2023 and March 2024.
At SDCP, we want you to know what you’re paying for. That’s why we are committed to an open and transparent process to provide competitive rates for our customers. Our rate setting is performed at our public Board meetings, which we encourage our customers to virtually attend.
We work hard to ensure that our rates are competitive, even when factoring in additional fees from SDG&E, who continues to deliver your power. We have a handy bill comparison tool available that will allow you to estimate and compare your bill between our PowerOn and Power100 services and SDG&E.
As a part of our shared commitment to provide energy options to our customers, San Diego Community Power and SDG&E have together created a Joint Rate Comparison of our typical electric rates, average monthly bills, and electric generation power sources. View the most recent February 2023 Joint Rate Comparison.
The Joint Rate Comparison depicts estimated costs based on average customer usage by rate class. Individual customer results may vary based on, but not limited to, usage, distribution, location, and generation load size.

With our handy comparison tool, you have the power to estimate and compare what your bill may look like with our PowerOn and Power100 service. Understand how our cleaner service compares to SDG&E’s standard service on a monthly basis. To get started, make sure to have a copy of your SDG&E bill handy.
Due to the many variables that ultimately determine your monthly costs and benefits as a NEM customer, including weather, usage, consumption/generation patterns, and the efficacy of your solar system, the bill comparison tool is not able to accommodate comparisons for NEM customers with negative usage.
