Generally seems like not much difference, however the rub with me is that they reset the NEM period for solar customers and because I usually rack up additional credits during Spring for the end of my true-up in May that erase my charges I'd have to pay SCE a couple hundred based on the early Feb 1 transition rate. Not cool. I think I'm opting out.
So here is a data point. This is my first bill from SCE where C
lliance, our new Community Choice Aggregation (CCA ), is the energy provider. SCE still does the Delivery and Billing. I chose the 100% renewable “Green Energy” plan.https://cleanpoweralliance.org/rate-options/
I used 638 kWh over 32 days. 63% Super Off-Peak (for the car), 29% Off-Peak and 8% Peak (everything else).
CPA “Generation” charges totaled $28.83 and SCE “Delivery” charges totaled $82.64.
Generation costs averaged 4.5¢ /kWh and Delivery cost averaged 13¢ /kWh.
Apparently, Manufacturing power is cheap. It's the Shipping costs that are expensive
