New SCE Commercial Electrical Rates For 2019


March 1st 2019 will be a pleasant surpise for some SCE commercial electric customers in Southern California. However, it will be a hit to the bottom line for others. Starting this year wiull be an inversion of the time of use (TOU) periods for electrical customers. What was historically the most costly period (High Peak) is going to become cheap electricity (Off Peak, and even Super Off Peak).

High peak rates are going to be from 4 pm to 9 pm. With off peak and super off peak rates being from 8 am to 4 pm. This is great news for the 8 - 4 business. Not so good for retail, foodservice, and entertainment businesses.

The real shock is going to be for customers that have recently installed solar. They are going to be generating cheap electricity. And here comes energy storage and demand management to the rescue!
