September 2017 Residential Messaging from SDG&E®

Article 1: High usage charge starts November 1
As part of California’s continued efforts to encourage people to use less energy, a new state-mandated High Usage Charge goes into effect November 1, 2017. This charge will apply to residential customers whose electricity use is more than four times the amount of their Baseline Allowance. Understanding your Baseline Allowance may help you manage your energy use to avoid this charge.
 
By subscribing to High Usage alerts, you'll know in advance that your usage will trigger the high-use charge. These alerts will let you know both before and when you start getting charged for high usage. You can choose to receive email or text alerts at sdge.com/alerts
 
If you are a CARE customer, you’re currently receiving a monthly bill discount of up to 38%.  However, high electricity use may make you ineligible to continue receiving this discount. The re-verification process will start with a separate letter sent from our CARE Program team.
