A reminder for San Diego Gas & Electric (SDG&E) customers: the transition to a new electric rate structure that began last September enters the next phase in July 2016. How these changes affect your electric bill will depend on your energy use, where you live and whether you’re enrolled in a bill discount program like California Alternate Rates for Energy (CARE).
