The Power Charge Indifference Adjustment (PCIA) is an exit fee charged by San Diego Gas and Electric (SDG&E) to customers that choose another provider of electricity generation service through direct access or Community Choice Aggregation (CCA) like Clean Energy Alliance (CEA). The fee is designed to cover the difference in the market value of energy resources that were already contracted on a customer’s behalf by SDG&E and the cost of those resources.
