Did you know that certain medical needs may qualify you or someone in your home for savings every month on your gas and electric bill? Apply for SDG&E’s Medical Baseline Allowance program if you need to use more energy due to a qualifying medical condition or to prevent an existing condition from getting worse. Examples include:

  1. A requirement for permanent space heating or cooling due to paraplegia, quadriplegia, hemiplegia, multiple sclerosis, scleroderma, a compromised immune system or a life-threatening illness.
  2. Required use of a life-support device, such as an aerosol tent, apnea monitor, kidney dialysis machine, motorized wheelchair or respirator (devices used for therapy don’t qualify; only medical devices that sustain life or are needed for mobility qualify).

To get a Medical Baseline Allowance application and more information, visit or call 1-800-411-7343. Eligibility requirements include having a physician sign your application to certify the medical need.
