Lower Rates

Follow the change




If the City creates a nonprofit electric utility San Diegans could save $20 Billion by 2042. San Diegans currently pay the highest electricity rates in the nation. These rates are increasing at more than 10 percent per year with no end in sight.

Nonprofit power utilities save the customer, by nature, as they are nonprofit entities owned by the community they serve. As nonprofit organizations, their primary goal is to provide reliable and affordable electricity to their customers rather than maximizing profits. This allows them to reinvest any surplus revenue back into improving infrastructure, enhancing services, or lowering rates for consumers.
