Competitive Rates. Cleaner Power.
The electric charges on your bill can be simplified into two categories:
- Electric Delivery Rates – SCE delivery rates are the same for RMEA and non-RMEA customers.
- Electric Generation Rates – Generation rates vary depending on the service that you choose: SCE, RMEA Base Choice, or RMEA Premium Renewable Choice.
If you choose RMEA service, RMEA will replace SCE’s higher rate for generation with RMEA’s lower rate. SCE adds fees specific to Community Choice Aggregation Programs– these fees are factored into RMEA’s rate setting process so that in total, you always receive a savings.
Time of Use Rates
Beginning in March 2022, SCE and RMEA will transition residential customers to Time-of-Use (TOU) rate plan options based on when you use electricity.
Time-of-use (TOU) rates mean the price of energy varies based on the time of day. Peak hours vary by rate class but are generally defined as the hours between 4–9PM. By shifting some electricity usage to non-peak hours when energy costs less (and is typically less polluting), you can lower your bill and support a healthier environment.

As part of our mutual commitment to better serve customers, RMEA and SCE have come together to provide a comparison of common rates and average monthly charges. Below you will find a representative comparison of our rates, average monthly bills, and power generation portfolio content based on customer class.
