How Reliability is Measured

As your electric utility, we want you to always have power when you need it. To get there, we constantly track and monitor electric outages across our service territory, and we measure our “system reliability” from this data.

The two metrics we rely on are common in the electric utility industry: the System Average Interruption Duration Index (SAIDI) and the System Average Interruption Frequency Index (SAIFI).

  • SAIDI measures the amount of time the average SCE customer experienced a power outage or interruption for more than five minutes (called a “sustained outage”) in a given year. In 2019, our SAIDI was about 91 minutes per customer (with Major Event Days excluded).
  • SAIFI is the number of times the average SCE customer experienced a sustained outage in a given year. In 2019, our SAIFI was 0.87 (with Major Event Days excluded), or less than one per customer.
SAIDI equals Minutes without power divided by number of customers
SAIFI equals all sustained outages divided by number of customers
