May 2016 When and What You Use Matters

San Diego Gas & Electric (SDG&E) has been letting you know about gradual changes to your electric bill. These changes are taking place as a result of statewide electric rate reform. The transition to a new electric rate structure that began last September enters the next phase later this year. Read more: http://www.sdge.com/RateReform/

How these changes affect your electric bill will depend on your energy use, where you live and whether you’re enrolled in a bill discount program like California Alternate Rates for Energy (CARE). You should also know that summer season electricity rates begin on May 1. Summertime rates are 2¢ to 3¢ higher than those in the winter, so this may affect your bill. 

To that end, there’s never been a better time to learn about ways that might help you save energy and save money! Here are some solutions that can help you do a variety of things from saving water or conserving energy using your smartphone, to earning credits on your energy bill to determining if you are eligible to receive a discount on your energy bill. 

Are you a homeowner with central air-conditioning and a w-fi connection? Tap your way to energy savings with an ecobee smart programmable thermostat, (a $300 value) with free installation, when you sign up for SDG&E’s Reduce Your Use Rewards Program.  By participating you may also receive a credit on your bill when you save electricity on a Reduce Your Use day!
