Third-Party Energy Efficiency (EE) Programs in SCE’s Service Territory
Energy Efficiency (EE) programs can help you save energy and contribute to a clean energy future. You can directly contact a third-party company (i.e., not affiliated with SCE) for many of these programs. You can learn more about the various third-party programs listed below and how they may be able to help you conserve energy and lower your energy costs.
Investor-Owned Utilities (IOUs) have contracted with third-party companies to design and implement the EE programs below. The list of third-party EE programs below is provided for informational purposes only and as a convenience to customers. If you participate in a third-party EE program, you will enter into a contract with the applicable third-party. SCE is not a party to, or guarantor of such contract and you should thoroughly review the terms and conditions of your contract with the third-party, so you know your rights and obligations before contracting. SCE does not recommend, endorse, qualify, guarantee, or make any representations or warranties regarding any third-party EE program and SCE shall not be liable for any actions or inactions of any third-party EE program.
