Commercial Rates

For the first time, you now have a choice when it comes to your energy provider. Clean Power Alliance offers three new options for your electricity, all at competitive rates.

Clean Power Alliance was established to bring you clean, renewable power at competitive rates. Because of this commitment, we established 2019 rates with clearly defined bill savings or premiums - depending on which rate option you choose. Clean Power Alliance pricing varies by rate class. See all rate classes here if you were enrolled in 2018 or if you will be enrolled this month.

In addition, the California Public Utilities Commission approved SCE’s estimated 5-7% rate increase on all customers to make up for their 2018 revenue shortfall of $825 million dollars. Part of this SCE rate increase went into effect in April 2019, with additional rate increases expected to go into effect in June 2019.

The pricing shown below is for a typical business customer and subject to change. Any changes to Clean Power Alliance rates will be adopted at duly noticed public meetings of the Clean Power Alliance Board of Directors.
  • Lean Power which will cost 1-2% less than SCE’s default rate
  • Clean Power which will offer comparable pricing to SCE’s default rate (0-1% savings)
  • 100% Green Power will have a 7-9% premium compared to SCE’s default rate
Customers with accounts on TOU-PA-2, TOU-PA-3, TOU-8, TOU-GS-3, or lighting rates may be subject to different rate comparisons. Please contact us at customerservice@cleanpoweralliance.org for more information.

Clean Power Alliance believes in transparency, and we are committed to serving the needs of our diverse communities. One of the ways we do this is by providing you the information needed to make empowered choices about the source of your energy.

(This bill comparison is based on an estimated average monthly energy consumption of 997 kilowatt hours (kWh) and using Clean Power Alliance rates approved by the Board of Directors, effective as of April 1st, 2019. SCE rates are based on rates published April 12, 2019. This comparison includes recent time of use period changes.)
Generation Rate reflects the cost of producing or purchasing electricity to power your business. This rate will vary depending on your service provider and rate plan.
SCE Delivery Rate is a charge assessed by SCE to deliver electricity to your business. This rate depends on usage.
Surcharges represent the Cost Responsibility Surcharge (CRS) and Franchise Fee (FF) that are applicable to Community Choice Aggregation (CCA) customers. The CRS recovers costs of power purchase commitments that become stranded as a result of a CCA initiating service. The FF recovers taxes owed to a city in exchange for allowing SCE to utilize electrical distribution lines throughout the property of the city. SCE acts as the collection agency for the FF surcharge which is levied by cities and counties for all customers.
