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.

SDG&E & 2-1-1 San Diego
Since 2000, SDG&E and 2-1-1 San Diego have collaborated to provide the Energy Assistance Helpline (EHA) to the residents of San Diego County. SDG&E began referring any client seeking financial assistance with utility bills to 2-1-1 San Diego. Additionally, since inception, 2-1-1 has served as the primary referral source for clients seeking Neighbor-to-Neighbor Assistance. The partnership has developed over the past many years and benefits organizations, clients, and the community. An important component of the 2-1-1 San Diego/SDG&E partnership is the funding provided by SDG&E. For SDG&E, supporting 2-1-1 means fewer shut-offs among clients, no need to launch additional numbers for clients to call in a time of need or when there is a wide-spread disaster, and clients receive added benefits from 2-1-1 San Diego as staff members help them identify secondary and tertiary needs.
We are grateful to our partners and are always looking for new ways to utilize our connections to expand our information base. If you would like to learn more about our partnerships, please contact Meg Storer, Chief of Staff, at email@example.com or (858) 300-1240.
