San Diego Gas and Electric
San Diego Gas and Electric (SDG&E) is the sole electric provider for San Diego County. SDG&E’s rates and solar policies are independent from other California electric companies, creating a unique situation for San Diego County residents who are considering going solar.
SDGE Rate Hikes:
As a local San Diegan, you’ve probably noticed your electric bills go up in the past few years. SDGE is requesting another set of big rate increases starting in 2019. How big are these increases? Well, the breakdown is astonishing: 11% in 2019, 6.9% in 2020, 5.1% in 2021 and 4.9% in 2022. That’s a 28% total increase for electric bills over a four year span. The time is now more than ever to switch to solar power and free yourself from constant rate increases from electrical companies.
Find yourself a solar contractor that knows how to work with SDG&E:
By choosing Semper Solaris, you’re not just lowering your SDGE bill, you’re maximizing your San Diego solar panel investment.

San Diego Residents Can Make Money With Solar:
If you’re considering renewable energy for your home, you’ll be happy to know that solar panels can generate income.
SDGE offers a Net Energy Metering (NEM) program which allows you to sell any solar energy you don’t use back to the grid. There are only two main factors that determine your NEM eligibility with SDGE:
- Your electrical generation system must be renewable (i.e solar panels)
Your system must be compliant with SDGE rules and regulations (with Semper Solaris, we’ll make sure your solar energy system is compliant).
