Why does Southern California Edison, the electric company for much of Los Angeles and Orange counties, want to merge with San Diego Gas & Electric, the utility serving the area directly south of Edison's? The answer, strangely enough, is competitive reasons. SCEcorp, as the Edison company now calls itself, is afraid that if San Diego Gas completes a merger with Tucson Electric Power Co., an aggressive Arizona utility, that merged company would begin poaching its customers.
