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.
