Eligibility & Requirements

Eligibility & Requirements

The Summer Discount Plan (SDP) program is subject to availability of cycling devices and adequate device signal strength at your location.

Summer Discount Plan is not recommended for anyone unable to tolerate high temperatures or who has health problems such as asthma, heart disease, or respiratory conditions.

If you currently receive a medical baseline allocation for air conditioning, or if you are on the DM, DMS-1, DMS-2, DMS-3, or DS domestic rates, you are not eligible to participate in the Summer Discount Plan. If you are participating in the Smart Energy Program, you are not eligible to enroll in the Summer Discount Plan.

To participate, your central air conditioner must be in good working order at enrollment and throughout your participation. Cycling devices will not be installed on non-operational air conditioners. If your central air conditioner becomes inoperable while you are participating in the Summer Discount Plan, you should have it repaired immediately. If it is discovered that your air conditioner is not in good working order or that you have tampered with the cycling device, your service account may be removed from the program. If you have any rooftop air conditioners on the Summer Discount Plan, you will not be eligible for the “override” options.

If you are a tenant, you are responsible for determining whether your property owner or manager’s approval is required for the installation and operation of the cycling device. If so, you are responsible for obtaining this approval before submitting your application to us.

Except for existing SDP customers with an installed interval data recorder (IDR) meter capable of registering hourly interval usage data before January 1, 2017, all existing and new customers must have an Edison SmartConnect® meter installed and program ready to participate in SDP.

Your account must register the use of a minimum of 1.5 kWh, one hour before or after, in at least one SDP event per the calendar year to remain eligible to participate in the SDP Program. This requirement is known as “the Minimum Usage Requirement.” An annual review of customer’s electric usage will be conducted by SCE no later than January 31 of each calendar year. At the annual review time, SCE will determine in its reasonable discretion if a customer has met the Minimum Usage Requirement. If removed from the program for failing to meet the Minimum Usage Requirement, you will not be allowed to re-enroll for the following 12-month period.

Participation Period

There is a 1-year minimum participation period requirement, starting on the activation date of your cycling device unless the program is suspended, modified, or terminated by the CPUC. If during the 1-year period, you, or someone in your household, develop a medical condition that disqualifies you from participating in the program, as substantiated by a medical provider, you may also request to be removed from the Summer Discount Plan. Your enrollment will be continuous unless, after the conclusion of the 1-year minimum participation period, you notify us that you wish to terminate.

Bill Credits

Bill credits will be calculated based on these factors:

  • Your current rate schedule
  • The size of your central air conditioner(s) being cycled - the greater the calculated tonnage, the larger the credit
  • The option you select, “standard” or “override”
  • The option you select, Maximum Savings (100%) or Maximum Comfort (50%)
  • The amount of electricity you use

tariffs prevail. Please refer to SCE’s Tariff Books for a complete list of terms and conditions of service.

We have a special billing program for you if you have, or are considering solar and other clean energy generation at your home or business: the Net Energy Metering (NEM 2.0) program. Simply put, the energy you produce, minus the energy you consume equals net energy. We’ll deduct the energy you export to the grid at times when generation exceeds on-site demand from your bill, and you may even earn surplus credits for the energy you produce. But remember, even with solar, you have to be connected to the grid for the times the sun isn’t shining.
