The Best Rate For Your Business

Need Help? Let Us Know.

We know times are tough. That's why we offer energy consultants to help your business reduce energy waste. Reach us at 1-800-990-7788 or Email us.

When you're running a business, every dollar counts. As a customer, you have the right to know exactly what's going on with your utility and rates, especially when rates are going up. We are keeping rate increases as reasonable as possible, and we're not asking you to do anything we're not willing to do ourselves. In fact, to reduce our own operational and maintenance expenses, we're implementing company-wide efficiency programs.

How Rates Are Set

We work together with the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) to set rates every three years in a process that's open to the public. Our entire budget is available online to anyone who wants to see it.

Our Budget & How Rates Are Set >

Late Payment Charges

A bill becomes past due 19 calendar days from the date it was prepared, at which point late payment charges are assessed. To avoid penalties, always pay bills on time.

Generation Component

Each rate is made up of the Utility Retained Generation (URG) factor. Complete, detailed pricing information is also available in Southern California Edison's SCE Tariff Book.

Important Definitions

Some  rate schedules have "demand charges," which enable us to meet customers’ peak power demands. These are in addition to energy charges, but the energy charges are lower than those on rate schedules without demand charges. Demand charges are:

1. Facilities-Related Demand Charges, applied all year round. 
2. Time-Related Demand Charges, applied only during summer months.

For some customers, rates with demand charges may offer some customers opportunities to reduce their electricity bills. If you would like more information about the rates listed below, including how to qualify, please call us at 1-800-990-7788 (the name of your current rate schedule is indicated on the top of your bill).
