Residential Rates

San Diego Community Power is powering you and your family with cleaner energy.

The Power to Choose

With San Diego Community Power, you have the power to choose the electricity service that’s right for you.

PowerOn, our standard service, is over 50% renewable. With a higher renewable energy content at a price competitive with SDG&E, PowerOn allows you to simply and easily reduce your carbon footprint.

Power100, our premium service, is 100% renewable and carbon-free. Power100 enables you to eliminate your greenhouse gas production from your electricity use at a slightly higher rate than PowerOn.

Estimate & Compare

Estimate and compare what your electric bill may look like with our services using our Bill Comparison Calculator. Compare our PowerOn and Power100 services and understand how our services compare to SDG&E’s.

To get started, make sure to have a copy of your SDG&E bill handy.

Unfortunately, our Bill Comparison Calculator is unable to accommodate Net Energy Metering (NEM) and Solar Billing Plan (SBP) customers with negative usage due to unpredictable variables (weather, usage, consumption and generation patterns, etc.) that influence your monthly costs and benefits as a solar customer. The Bill Comparison Calculator also does not take into consideration CARE/FERA discounts for all rate schedules.

Rate Transparency

At San Diego Community Power, we want to ensure that you to know what you’re paying for. We are committed to an open and transparent process to set competitive rates for our customers. Our rate setting is performed at our public Board of Directors 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. Our Bill Comparison Tool allows you to estimate and compare your bill between our standard PowerOn and our premium Power100 services, as well as compare our services to SDG&E’s.


Joint Rate Comparison

San Diego Community Power and SDG&E have worked together to create a Joint Rate Comparison of our typical electric rates, average monthly bills and electric generation power sources. View the most recent March 2024 Joint Rate Comparison here. 

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.
