SDG&E is currently sponsoring the San Diego Energy Challenge contest that is being managed by authorized contractor Simple Energy. Through San Diego Energy Challenge, San Diego Unified School District (SDUSD) area residents are eligible to lower their bills and earn a bill credit on Reduce Your Use days, while simultaneously competing to raise money for the local middle school of their choice. This innovative program recently earned backing from the Department of Energy (DOE), with an announcement that SDG&E was awarded a prestigious DOE funding opportunity to run the program.
Cash Grants for Schools
San Diego Energy Challenge participants will have the chance to earn individual prizes and help their local SDUSD middle school compete for a chance to win a cash grant. Schools can earn $500 for school supplies, and the top three overall winning schools will split a cash grant of $30,000. The San Diego Energy Challenge uses a fun social online game platform, created and managed by Simple Energy, to encourage customers to save energy through friendly competition with their friends and neighbors.
This fun game is easy to play just:
- Sign up at https://www.sdenergychallenge.com/ using your account number from your SDG&E® bill
- Select a middle school of your choice
- Save energy when a Reduce Your Use day is called
And, by saving energy on Reduce Your Use days from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., you'll be rewarded with a credit on your SDG&E bill. For more information about Reduce Your Use visit sdge.com/reduceuse.
