When you use electricity is just as important as how much electricity you use.

Most California electric customers are being moved to a Time-of-Use (TOU) rate plan to ensure greater grid reliability, fight climate change, and support a cleaner and healthier energy future.

Most SJCE residential customers were automatically transitioned to TOU rates in June 2021 with no action required from the customer. Customers received two notices in the mail from PG&E and SJCE summarizing their options and tips for saving energy prior to being transitioned.

Customers can try TOU rates risk free for one year with automatic bill protection. Customers may also decline the transition and return to the old tiered rate plan at any time.
