Self-generation customers may also qualify. Get all the program details in our Solution Directory which is available on the Online Application Tool.

Equipment Eligibility Checklist

Upgrading to energy-efficient equipment? To qualify for incentives, all equipment must:

  • Be new and meet all eligibility requirements listed in the Solutions Directory
  • Be high efficiency equipment above mandated codes or industry standard practices
  • Use less wattage if part of a retrofitting
  • Be fully installed and operational
  • Remain at the site of your active SCE business account

The Fine Print Customer Eligibility

  • Your business must have an active, valid SCE electric account
  • Residential customers are not eligible
  • Common areas of multi-family properties, on a qualifying business rate schedule, are eligible
  • Participation is not determined by business size, rate schedule, or monthly demand
  • Co-generation, wind, solar, and other self-generation customers who purchase electricity from SCE should contact their Account Representative or 1-800-736-4777 for assistance in determining eligibility
  • You may not receive multiple rebates or customer incentives for the same energy solution or energy efficiency upgrade

Product Eligibility

  • Energy-efficient products appear in our Solutions Directory located in the Online Application Tool
  • Detailed product location information must be provided on your application before we can process it


Post-installation inspections may be random or mandatory. Your application contains specifics.

  • Inspectors will make three attempts to contact you to make inspection arrangements
  • If you are unreachable, the application will be denied
  • For inspection purposes, access to equipment is required during normal business hours, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, excluding holidays
  • If your equipment is not installed or operational at the time of the inspection, your customer incentives application will be declined.
  • If equipment is only partially installed, a partial customer incentive will be paid. Further energy efficiency upgrades—from making equipment operational or from additional installation—will require a new customer incentives application.
  • SCE may authorize a re-inspection upon request, however re-inspections are subject to a $400 fee. SCE will not authorize more than one site re-inspection or application for reprocessing. The second inspection will be considered final and re-submittal of the incentive will not be accepted.

Extent Of Eligibility

  • The maximum customer incentive per energy solution (measure) will be paid on a per unit basis up to 100% of the equipment cost.
  • Installed cost includes equipment cost only. Labor costs may be eligible when a customer-installed project is involved.
  • Sales tax and shipping should not be included in the equipment costs.
