Receiving your natural gas service from a third-party Gas Service Provider (GSP) is serviced through the Core Aggregation Transportation Service.
Core Aggregation Transportation (CAT)
The CAT program gives customers the option to purchase natural gas from gas marketers, also known as aggregators. The following customers are eligible for the program.
Customers using 250,000 therms or less per year
Natural gas vehicle customers
Signing Up for Service
If you are interested in receiving Core Aggregation Transportation Service, first contact a Gas Service Provider (GSP) and discuss your options.
If you decide on this service, the GSP will submit a gas direct access service request (DASR) to SDG&E to switch your account to the Customer Choice Program.
Your GSP will need the following:
You can find this information at the top of your SDG&E bill.
Residential customers have 30 days after they receive their first bill from their supplier to cancel their enrollment in the CAT program. Contact your service provider or SDG&E to request a termination of third party gas services.
Changing to a Different Gas Service Provider
Initially, customers commit to participate in the Customer Choice Program for one year. After the first year, customers can switch to a different GSP or return to SDG&E procurement services. The agreement with your GSP should outline any cancellation process and conditions.
If your GSP terminates service to customers or goes out of business, you will return to SDG&E’s procurement service.
90 Days Termination and Switch Conditions
Customers have up to 90 days from the termination effective date to switch to another GSP. After 90 days, if the customer has not chosen a new GSP, the customer must continue to receive gas procurement service from SDG&E for a total of 12 months before being eligible to return to service under the Customer Choice program.
