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.
  • 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, at most, a 7-9% premium to SCE’s default rate
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.

You should know that SCE has proposed a double digit increase to 2019 rates charged to both their own and Clean Power Alliance customers to make up for a budget shortfall of almost $1 billion dollars they experienced in 2018. If SCE’s proposed increases are approved by the California Public Utilities Commission, they will likely go into effect in March or April 2019. If this happens, all customers will see a rate increase and we will adjust our own rates as needed to ensure our Board-approved savings/premiums do not change.

As always, any future rate changes will be adopted at public meetings of our Board of Directors.

Rate Comparison
* This comparison illustrates the estimated electricity costs for an average monthly consumption of 1,002 kilowatt hours (kWh). It is based on Clean Power Alliance rates approved by the Board of Directors on April 5, 2018 and effective as of June 25, 2018. SCE rate options are based on rates published January 1, 2018. Both Clean Power Alliance and SCE’s rates are subject to change.
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.
