Notice of Accessing, Collecting, Storing, Using, and Disclosing Energy Usage Information
Clean Energy Alliance, its employees, agents, contractors, and affiliates shall maintain the confidentiality of individual customer’s names, service addresses, billing addresses, telephone numbers, email addresses, account numbers, and electricity consumption, except where reasonably necessary to conduct Clean Energy Alliance’s business or to provide services to customers as required by the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC). Examples of reasonably necessary business purposes include but are not limited to when such disclosure is necessary to (a) comply with law, regulation, or court order; (b) enable Clean Energy Alliance to provide services to its customers; (c) collect unpaid bills; (d) obtain and provide credit reporting information; (e) resolve customer disputes or inquiries; (f) communicate about demand response, energy efficiency, energy management, and conservation programs, or (g) in situation of imminent threat to life or property. Clean Energy Alliance shall not, under any circumstances, disclose customer information for third-party telemarketing, e-mail, or direct mail solicitation. Aggregated data that cannot be traced to specific customers may be released at Clean Energy Alliance’s discretion.
Customer data, including individual customer names, addresses, and electric energy usage data, is collected via San Diego Gas & Electric’s metering systems. Clean Energy Alliance may share customer data with contractors and vendors for purposes of providing services and operating programs. Contractors and vendors are required to agree to only use customer data for program operational purposes and protect it under the same standards as Clean Energy Alliance. Clean Energy Alliance maintains customer-specific energy usage and billing information for only as long as is reasonably necessary, typically not more than five years unless otherwise necessary by law or regulation.
