PRIME offers competitive rates for cleaner energy
We buy power from cleaner sources for our customers and fill SCE’s wires. SCE continues to do all the billing for everything. We simply replace their power generation charges with ours.
The purpose of the Joint Rate Comparison is to share energy sources, compare rates of generation, and show what your monthly charges will look like.
PRIME rates are set annually by the Pico Rivera City Council, so you’ll have a steady, predictable outlook on your rates. You’ll also have the satisfaction of working with a local provider, governed by local leaders whose interests are aligned with yours.
You can download our adopted rate schedules for both residents and commercial use.

Generation Rate reflects the cost of producing or purchasing electricity to power your home. This rate will vary depending on your service provider and rate plan.
SCE Delivery Rate is a charge assessed by SCE to deliver electricity to your home. This rate depends on usage.
Surcharges represent the Cost Responsibility Surcharge (CRS) and Franchise Fee (FF) that are applicable to Community Choice Aggregation (CCA) customers. The CRS includes the Power Charge Indifference Adjustment (PCIA), which is either a charge or credit, designed to ensure that SCE’s previously committed generation resource costs are not shifted to SCE’s remaining customers. SCE bundled customers who participate in SCE’s optional Green Rate program also pay a PCIA charge. The FF recovers taxes owed to a city in exchange for allowing SCE to utilize electrical distribution lines throughout the property of the city. SCE acts as the collection agency for the FF surcharge which is levied by cities and counties for all customers.
