EcoShare brings community renewables to SDG&E customers.
How it Works
Through EcoShare you work directly with third-party renewable energy developers to purchase the rights to a portion of the energy generated from a new renewable energy facility. You enter into a private agreement with the developer, known as a Customer-Developer Agreement (CDA), where the electricity price and agreement terms are defined. Participating developers also enter into a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) with us, and are paid only for energy generated in excess of what customers have purchased.
EcoShare participants will receive two bills each month:
- Your normal SDG&E bill with a credit reflective of the amount of renewable energy purchased from the developer.
- A bill from the developer to pay them for the renewable energy they are producing for you.
Enrolling in EcoShare is handled through your renewable energy developer. SDG&E’s terms and conditions, as well as the value of the bill credit received from us, are outlined in the EcoShare tariff. A minimum one year agreement is required and termination fees may apply.

- Historical Rates and 20-Year Forecasts
There are currently no developers with an active EcoShare Power Purchase Agreement (PPA). However, you may encounter developers building community interest for a future project.
If a developer has contacted you and you want to know if they are participating in EcoShare, or if you would like to report a problem with a developer, please email us at CTTS@sdge.com or call 800-411-7343.
