1. Save up to 35% on your SDG&E bill
Receive a lower bill every month if your income falls within certain levels or if you’re enrolled in a public assistance program, such as the National School Lunch Program (NSLP). The California Alternate Rates for Energy (CARE) program saves the average household around $275 a year. Learn more and apply at sdge.com/CARE.
2. Save money by saving energy
With the Energy Savings Assistance Program, you may receive free services such as weatherstripping, minor home repairs and even new energy-efficient appliances. Whether you rent or own, you can qualify if you meet the income guidelines or if you’re already receiving public assistance, such as SNAP/CalFresh. Learn more at sdge.com/energyassistance.
3. Pay a lower rate for electricity
If you have certain medical conditions or use equipment that affects your SDG&E bill, the Medical Baseline Allowance program can help. When a physician certifies that a medical need qualifies you, this program charges the lowest possible rate for more of the energy you use. Medical Baseline Allowances can save you around $30 a month. Learn more at sdge.com/medicalbaseline.
