The CPUC’s Electric Rate Comparison website allows consumers to view the residential electric rates for any geographic area in a side-by-side energy provider comparison chart. For certain areas of California, electric energy is provided by either an Investor-Owned Utility (IOU) or a Community Choice Aggregator (CCA) service provider and consumers have a choice between energy providers.

Phase 1 residential rate comparison webpage will be an interim step prior to launching the website in early 2023.

All current rates including California Alternative Rates for Energy (CARE) for geographical areas may not be available on this site.  Please contact your energy provider for current rates if rates are not available.
