Application to Receive Electric Service

Introduction

Under a Community Aggregation Program authorized by Assembly Bill 80 in 2002, the City of Cerritos established the Cerritos Electric Utility (“CEU”) to provide electric generation service to commercial customers within the city limits for economic development purposes. CEU recently obtained authorization to expand the CEU’s Community Aggregation Program to provide electric generation service to residents. Under the CEU’s Community Aggregation Program, CEU provides electric generation service to customers, while Southern California Edison Company (“SCE”) continues to provide electric delivery service to these customers. Participating customers will be required to pay two bills: one bill from CEU for the cost of electric generation service, and a second bill from SCE for the use of SCE’s electric system to deliver electricity supplied by CEU. CEU’s Community Aggregation Program provides customers a discounted rate for electricity, and customers also have an opportunity for local input on the type of power supplied by CEU (example natural gas vs solar). 

Application

This application will allow CEU to evaluate your account information and determine your eligibility for service from CEU. As part of this evaluation, CEU may request certain documents from you to confirm your eligibility. Once CEU receives and accepts the application as complete along with any necessary supporting documents, CEU will provide you an agreement that must be signed and returned to CEU. After receiving a signed copy of the agreement, CEU will identify a date for CEU to begin providing electric generation service. Additional details regarding the agreement and CEU’s Community Aggregation Program may be found in CEU’s Rules and Regulations.  

Commercial customers and residential customers who are not seeking enrollment based on age, income and/or disability need to complete Part 1 and 3 of the application only. Residential customers who are seeking enrollment based on age, income and/or disability are required to complete Part 1, 2 and 3 of the application. Since, CEU does not have the capacity to serve the entire city electrical load, the Cerritos City Council directed that residential customers should be enrolled based on the following priority:

1. Residents that are determined to be senior and low income and/or disabled
2. Residents that are determined to be low income and/or disabled
3. All other residents (with exception of residents with onsite generation)
