WHY COMMUNITY CHOICE ENERGY IS

GOOD FOR SAN DIEGO

You Deserve a Choice

Community Choice Energy (CCE) gives San Diego residents and businesses a clean energy alternative to the SDG&E monopoly, which charges you the highest rates in California and some of the highest rates in the nation.

CCE is TRIED AND TRUE

Communities statewide already receive cleaner energy at lower cost. Nine Community Choice Energy programs serve customers throughout California, and eight more are ready to come online in 2018.

We can’t be left behind

San Diego can’t afford to be left behind in the clean energy movement. CCE allows transparency and accountability, keeping revenues local by investing in renewable energy and creating jobs for our community.
