  • SDG&E Policy Change - NBC now count against minimum bill

    Just got my second bill of my new 12 month true-up cycle. My first bill (last month) was 10.56 (32 days) less a "policy adjustment" credit of $3.66 for a total due of $6.90. And now, this second bill is $9.97 (30 days). Looking at the details, both bills had an NBC amount plus a minimum bill adjustment (plus some small taxes) to get to the final $ of the month. In all my prior 12 month bills in my last true up cycle, the bill was always not lower than the minimal daily charge X number of days and then the NBC added.

    In any event, I've got a $290.47 credit built up in these first two months for use against the summer heat that's around the corner.

      The "awe" should be more "I'm glad I don't live there". It's a beautiful state, and wonderful climate here in the San Diego area, but it's an expensive place to live and going a bit crazy in terms of new laws -- the most recent being (and I'm not certain how it's going to be enforced, but I'm sure they will come up with a bureaucracy to do so) a new law that in 2022 restricts indoor water usage to 50 gallons per person per day.

        I'm not sure I understand what point you are making. I'm on SDG&E too under original NEM. I just completed my third true-up. What has changed?

          According to Snopes, that's not completely true. The 50 gal per person "goal" isn't in effect until 2030 and nothing in that law provides for any individual penalty for exceeding 50 gal per person per day usage. Obviously there are lots of ways of conserving water and the state is giving notice along with some time for Californians as a group to get their usage down to sustainable levels in light of long term droughts that are coming. It sounds like a smart approach to me but then I also like the idea of pushing carmakers to build vehicles that get better fuel economy. (See https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/ca...ry-and-shower/)

            I'm NEM 2.0 grandfathered TOU time periods. Bills this year (two months) are at the minimum per day charge. Last year they were minimum per day + NBC for that pulled from the grid when use > production.

              We are flushing millions of gallons out to the ocean while we turned the central valley of the state to dust bowl conditions. We have invested in desalination and reservoirs in San Diego, and we have rationing imposed on us when we have supplies to meet our needs. We welcome and protect millions who flaunt our immigration yet claim there is no water.

              CA has become a socialist state that is beyond the tipping point for ever coming back.
