Rate Transparency

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.

Joint Rate Comparison

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.

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. View the Joint Rate Comparison.

Estimate & Compare

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.
