In the beginning of the COVID-19 crisis, SDG&E put emergency customer protections in place to help ease the financial burden many Southern Californians were suddenly feeling. The California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) has extended the emergency customer protections to June 30, 2021. Normal business operations will resume on July 1, 2021.
