Why am I being switched to another rate plan?

In 2018, SCE started offering rates with Time-of-Use (TOU) peak periods to better align with California’s adoption of cleaner resources and the cost to deliver power throughout the day. TOU peak periods are now later in the day when less renewable resources are available, but demand for energy is still high. As part of a statewide initiative to use more clean renewable power—like solar and wind—and simplify rates, customers will be switched to their lowest cost TOU rate plan based on their historical usage. This will begin in late 2021, although customers with an electric vehicle charging station with a dedicated meter can remain on their rate for now. Some solar customers will be allowed to remain on their discontinued rate until 2024, depending on the Permission to Operate (PTO) date or when they last took service on the rate. For more details on the timeframe when customers will be migrating, please see the FAQs below.

What to Expect

You will receive a letter approximately 60 days before your transition period with a personalized comparison between your discontinued rate plan and other available rate plan options. Some solar customers will also receive a notification on their bill 90 days before the transition period.

Your service account will automatically be switched to your lowest cost TOU rate plan based on your historical usage. You may switch rate plans twice in the 12-month period following the transition.

If you elect a different rate before your transition, you will be locked in that rate for 12 months.

  • Rate changes made after the “reply by” date on your letter may not be processed.

Understanding Your Rate Plan Options

There are three different TOU Rate Plans, and you’ll be switched to the lowest cost TOU plan based on your historical usage. However, we understand that many people have had to make changes to their lifestyle recently, so you may want to compare our recommended rate plan with your other rate plan options. 

TOU 4-9 P.M.

This rate plan benefits households who can reduce their energy usage between 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. For example, if you end the night early, take advantage of lower rates earlier in the day.

TOU 5-8 P.M.

This rate plan benefits households who can lower their energy usage between 5 p.m. and 8 p.m. For example, if you stay up late, try using major appliances like your dishwasher after 8 p.m.

TOU PRIME

TOU PRIME is for households with electric or plug-in hybrid vehicles, a residential battery, or an electric heat pump system for water or space heating. However, customers transitioning from discontinued rate plans will not be required to attest qualifying equipment when requesting a rate change to TOU PRIME.

Other Rate Plan Option

Domestic Tiered
This rate plan is available for residential solar customers who are considered Net Energy Metering (NEM) 1.0 customers and residential customers not on Net Energy Metering (non-NEM). It is a more traditional billing plan where the best way to keep energy costs low is to limit your total energy consumption. Although customers are not being automatically transitioned to this rate, it may be a better option for some customers. NEM 2.0 customers are not eligible for the Domestic Tiered rate.

Compare your TOU rate plan options
The Rate Plan Comparison Tool (RPCT) can give you a personalized comparison between your current plan and other plan options. You may be eligible to use this tool to find out if you could save on other rate plans, get estimates based on your usage, and switch rate plans now.

Get Financial Help with Your Bill

If you are currently receiving assistance through our CARE or FERA programs, your discount will continue with a different TOU rate plan. If you aren’t enrolled in one of our programs yet, find out how we can help you with lowering your monthly bill.

Chương Trình Giữ Lại Giá Cũ

Đôi khi, chi tiết trong chương trình của chúng tôi phải thay đổi để thích hợp với những nhu cầu ngày càng phát triển về năng lượng. Điều này có thể có nghĩa rằng chương trình hiện tại của quý vị không nhận thêm khách hàng ghi danh mới nữa. Nếu quý vị giữ lại chương trình cũ, vào lúc này quý vị vẫn giữ lại giá cũ. Nếu chuyển qua một chương trình giá biểu mới, quý vị sẽ không thể ghi danh lại vào chương trình cũ của mình nữa.

Chương Trình Giữ Lại Giá Cũ Hiện Tại

TOU-D-A

Chương trình giữ lại giá cũ này có thể tốt hơn cho những người sử dụng năng lượng ở mức thấp và mức trung bình (ít hơn 700 kWh/tháng). Chương trình này có giá biểu được bù lại bằng Khoản Tín Dụng Căn Bản mỗi tháng.

TOU-D-B

Chương trình giữ lại giá cũ này có thể tốt hơn cho những người sử dụng nhiều năng lượng (hơn 700 kWh/tháng). Chương trình này có giá biểu thấp hơn cho giờ cao điểm, nhưng có phí căn bản hàng ngày cao hơn so với TOU-D-A và không có tín dụng căn bản.

TOU-D-T 

Chương trình giữ lại giá cũ này kết hợp giữa giá Time-Of-Use và Giá Biểu theo Bậc. Không giống như các chương trình TOU khác, TOU-D-T có hai bậc giá được quyết định bởi định mức căn bản của quý vị.

TOU-EV-1 

Chương trình giữ lại giá cũ này dành cho khách hàng có trạm sạc điện cho xe hơi có đồng hồ riêng.

Cân nhắc chuyển qua chương trình giá biểu khác?

Công Cụ So Sánh Giá Biểu của chúng tôi có thể giúp quý vị tìm hiểu xem một giá biểu khác có thể thích hợp hơn cho cách sống của quý vị.

Hỏi Đáp cho Chương Trình Giữ Lại Giá Cũ

Hiện nay, chúng tôi đang có kế hoạch đóng các chương trình giữ lại giá cũ này và đưa khách hàng vào chương trình TOU có chi phí thấp nhất có sẵn vào cuối năm 2020. Một số khách hàng có cơ sở phát điện mặt trời giữ lại giá cũ có thể được phép giữ lại chương trình này lâu hơn, tùy theo ngày kích hoạt hệ thống điện mặt trời của họ.

To help ease the transition to the new TOU periods, your service account was not initially affected by this change. Instead, your account continued to be served on the then-existing rate plan. Some solar customers continued to be served on the then-existing rate plan for the duration of a five-year eligibility period starting from the Permission to Operate (PTO) date of your solar system or when you last took the discontinued rate plan. This five-year-period has expired or will expire this year for your service account.

- If you are a non-NEM customer (do not have solar power), you will transition to your new TOU rate in Q4 2021.

- If you are a NEM 1.0 customer, you will transition to your new TOU rate five years from your Permission to Operate (PTO) date, beginning in fall 2021 and not to exceed 2022. This applies to residential and small business customers who received permission to operate before July 1, 2017 and submitted their application for interconnection on or before January 31, 2017. If you are an NEM 1.0 customer, you will still be moved to a TOU rate plan unless you want to choose to switch to another rate plan.

- If you are a NEM 2.0 customer, you will transition to your new TOU rate five years from when you last took the discontinued TOU rate, beginning in fall 2021 and not to exceed 2024. NEM 2.0 applies to residential and small business customers who received permission to operate on or after July 1, 2017.

Có, quý vị có thể đổi từ chương trình giữ lại giá cũ qua một chương trình mới. Tuy nhiên, một khi quý vị đổi qua chương trình không giữ lại giá cũ, quý vị không thể đổi trở lại vào chương trình giữ lại giá cũ nữa.

Thí dụ, nếu quý vị hiện tại ghi danh vào TOU-D-A, quý vị có thể đổi qua TOU-D-4-9PM. Một khi quý vị đã chọn TOU-D-4-9PM, quý vị không thể đổi trở lại vào TOU-D-A nữa.

SCE will be placing customers on the lowest cost available TOU option based on their historical usage over the last year. There may be other rates, such as the Domestic Tiered rate, that would provide even more savings. To determine which rate is best for you, refer to your letter or visit sce.com/rateplantool.

If your electric generation provider is a Community Choice Aggregation (CCA) or Direct Access (DA), your rate analysis is a proxy rate analysis based on the rates you would pay if you were receiving both delivery and generation services from SCE for your current rate and alternate rate options. Your actual costs may differ from what is shown. For generation costs, please contact your CCA Service Provider or DA Electric Service Provider 

You can find more information about CCAs on our CCA FAQ Page

You can find more information about DAs on our DA FAQ Page

Did you know that owning battery storage can help you take advantage of lower prices in the day? You can charge your battery in the afternoon when prices are lower, and then dispatch your battery during the peak times (4-9 p.m. or 5-8 p.m.) to avoid pulling energy off the grid when prices are higher. You can still take advantage of incentives that help lower your bill when you store your solar energy and use it during peak hours. You could also set your battery storage to partially power your home during an extended outage. (Systems solely for back-up are not eligible.)

You can add a battery system to receive NEM credits for storage exports during peak hours. You may even qualify for a cash incentive from 50 cents to $4.25 per watt for installing your own qualifying battery storage equipment. Visit sce.com/SGIP to learn more about SCE's Self-Generation Incentive Program (SGIP).
