DCE Rates

DCE offers competitive rates for cleaner, greener power.

Desert Community Energy offers cleaner, greener power from sources that are as close to home as possible, and feed them into the electricity grid (SCE will continue to manage the power lines, infrastructure, billing, and service).

When you're enrolled in Desert Community Energy, you will continue to receive a single monthly bill, but Desert Community Energy's power generation charges will replace SCE’s charges.

Desert Community Energy rates will be set annually by our Board of Directors and may be adjusted as needed to remain competitive. And you’ll know that your electricity provider is locally managed by community leaders who have your best interests at heart.

Below are the DCE rate schedules as of April 13, 2020.

  • DCE's Carbon Free plan for residential customers is 2.5% more than SCE's base rate.
  • DCE's Desert Saver plan for residential customers is about 1.5% less than SCE's base rate.
