Our response to COVID-19
We’ve made some changes due to COVID-19, including suspending service disconnections for residential and small business customers for nonpayment, and only continuing critical work needed to protect public safety and reduce the risk of wildfires. Learn more here. If you have recently lost your job, even if you are receiving unemployment benefits, you may qualify for a reduced energy rate through our CARE or FERA programs. Learn more.

Programs for Self-Generation

Are you a residential or business customer interested in supplementing the electricity provided by Southern California Edison? Are you interested in adopting a greener life-style?

SCE offers several programs to help you generate your own power (become a “self-generator”). Self-generation allows SCE customers to produce electricity using equipment they (or a third party) own and operate to meet some or all of their energy needs.

SCE encourages self-generation because it:

  • Reduces customers electric bills
  • Fosters the use of renewable energy sources
  • Helps California meet its energy goals
  • Lessens the need to construct additional energy infrastructure
  • Helps the environment
  • Adds value to your home or business

References and additional information regarding options for self-generation are described below.

DISCLAIMER: The guidelines in this section are provided with the intent to help SCE’s customers understand SCE’s Interconnection Procedures. However, in the case of discrepancies with SCE’s rules, such tariffs and regulations will prevail.
