SDG&E Asks Customers to "Reduce Your Use" TODAY

Save energy and earn a bill credit

Post Date:08/20/2012

San Diego Gas & Electric is asking customers to Reduce Your Use today due to hotter-than-average temperatures.

While we’re not experiencing a system emergency at this time, you can help reduce strain on the electric grid by reducing your electricity use between 11 a.m. - 6 p.m. By doing so, you will be eligible to earn a bill credit of $0.75 per kilowatt hour saved.

Here are some quick tips to help you save energy at home:

  • Raise your central A/C’s thermostat setting four to six degrees.
  • Run major appliances before 11 a.m. or after 6 p.m.
  • Unplug chargers and power strips.
  • Turn off pool pumps between 11 a.m. and 6 p.m.

Customers are encouraged to log on to the My Account section of the SDG&E website after the event by going to the My Energy tab and click on My Energy Use. Find your “Use Less Than” amount on the table and put your conservation plan in place to earn rewards. For more information on power conservation, visit or
