Reap The Benefits of Paperless Billing

(Source: SDG&E) - With paper-free billing, managing your bill is a snap. Not only is it more convenient, but you’ll also enjoy these additional benefits when you choose paperless billing:

1. Organization: You’ll clear the clutter and stacks of paper – maybe save some trees and even avoid a few papercuts!

2. Peace of mind: No need to worry about missing a payment. Sign up for email or text reminders when your bill is ready to view. Pay from anywhere, anytime – online or in the app.

3. Convenience: Everything you need is in one place. You can view your bill summary, access your billing and payments history, sign up for alerts, view outage maps and more.

4. Security: Your energy bill and personal information are secure and protected. A paper bill in your mailbox puts you at risk for identity theft.
