At this time, SCE will only be accepting applications for the Charge Ready waitlist for sites that are in state-designated Disadvantaged Communities.

Due to the high volume of applications for several options within the Charge Ready Program for light-duty vehicles, and to help ensure we remain within the approved port and budget parameters set forth by the California Public Utilities Commission, new applications for certain program options will be placed on a waitlist beginning September 1, 2022. Those program options include state-designated Disadvantaged Communities sites for Charge Ready Infrastructure & Rebate, Customer-Side Make-Ready, and Multifamily Turn-Key Installation. Currently, applications are still being accepted and reviewed for the New Construction Rebate for multifamily dwellings and the Charge Ready Transport Program for medium- and heavy-duty vehicles. These programs do not have a waitlist. Please keep in mind, however, that funding or program rebates are not guaranteed for any applications. As the Charge Ready team processes the current application pool, we will keep you updated on funding availability and the status of your application. For questions, please contact

Charging Infrastructure and Rebate Program

We make EV charging equipment more affordable for decision makers owning or operating multi-family properties. Our Charging Infrastructure and Rebate Program offers program funded electric distribution system infrastructure upgrades and EV charging equipment rebates to those seeking to install EV charging equipment at their property site.

Program Overview  

Your multi-family housing properties require solutions to meet your needs and goals. Our Charging Infrastructure and Rebate Program provides step-by-step assistance for infrastructure upgrades and installation. Eligible multi-family housing properties will save money when participating in the program and installing four or more EV charging ports.

How It Works

Program Funded Design and Installation of Supporting Electrical Infrastructure

We are here to help by providing the infrastructure upgrades needed for EV charging equipment to those who qualify. Participating sites must be located within SCE’s service territory and be an SCE customer.

SCE will perform all the necessary utility-side of the meter infrastructure work. All participants will have the option to have SCE also perform the customer-side infrastructure work (sometimes referred to as the customer-side make-ready) at no additional cost to the participant, or alternatively, may choose to design, procure, install, and maintain the customer-side make ready infrastructure themselves and qualify to receive a rebate of up to 80% of the estimated costs.
