Understanding your bill

DCE will be your new electricity service provider, but your billing will still look a lot like it always has.

Our electricity service may be cleaner, greener, and some is even lower priced—but our program partnership with SCE means that nothing else will change. You’ll still get a single monthly bill, on which SCE’s power generation charges will be replaced by DCE’s. Other than that, everything will work exactly as it always has.

When your DCE service begins, your next bill will show a line item for power generation from DCE for cleaner power. SCE’s charges will cover everything else, including electricity delivery services, maintenance, and customer service.
