SCE’s Historic-Era Electrical Infrastructure Management Program (Program) was developed to establish a consistent protocol for identifying, reviewing, exempting, and treating SCE’s historic-era electrical infrastructure throughout our 50,000 square-mile service territory.
- SCE maintains several classes of electrical infrastructure and has developed a strategy for identifying and determining which are historically significant.
- SCE’s history and innovative achievements in electrical engineering and electrical system design helped industrialize southern California.
- SCE maintains several classes of electrical infrastructure and has developed a strategy for identifying and defining the significant properties within each class or facility type.
