Long Beach Update

As of 4:20 a.m. today, we are in the process of reconnecting customers to the network who have been on generator power.

Affected customers may experience temporary outages during this process. We thank customers for their patience as we work to restore them to the network as safely and efficiently as possible. We encourage customers in Long Beach to make every effort to conserve use of electricity as we continue to return the system to its full operational capacity.

We will reopen our distribution center at 925 Locust at 8 a.m. today to distribute food, ice and water. The safety of the public and our crews remain our highest priority. We thank the city of Long Beach for its cooperation and for the safety efforts of first responders in the Long Beach Fire and Police departments. Get the latest update >

Information for ESPs

We developed this website to be used by ESPs interested in providing Direct Access (DA) services within our service territory. The information provided gives ESPs a comprehensive overview of our DA procedures so they can better interact with us to establish and provide ongoing DA services to our mutual customers.


Direct Access Service is an optional choice that allows customers to elect to purchase electricity and other services from an Electric Service Provider (ESP), instead of from us. An ESP is the entity that contracts directly with the customer to provide electric service, and is responsible for arranging an adequate supply of electricity. ESPs are required to meet certain requirements with the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) in addition to meeting our financial and technical requirements. The documentation contained here provides information an ESP needs to become established and operate in our service territory.

The CPUC website provides a List of Electric Service Providers conducting business in our territory.

This site will be continually updated to provide you with our most current Direct Access business and operational methods and tools for your assistance.
