Financial Assistance for Families and Individuals

SCE understands that many customers continue to struggle financially, and that sometimes other expenses must come first. Our Family Electric Rate Assistance (FERA) and California Alternate Rates for Energy (CARE) financial assistance programs help qualifying families of all sizes lower their monthly energy bills when they need it most. 

You may qualify for either FERA or CARE based on the size of your household and the total current income of all persons living in your house, condo, apartment, or mobile home. 

Apply for CARE or FERA With Our Easy Online Application 

You can find out if you qualify for the California Alternate Rates for Energy (CARE) or Family Electric Rate Assistance (FERA) online. Visit our CARE/FERA Discounted Rates page to learn more and fill out the short online application.  

  • How much will CARE or FERA save me on my bill?

    The CARE rate reduces energy bills for qualifying individuals and households of two or more by up to 30%. Eligible customers enrolled in FERA will reduce their monthly bill by 18%

  • Already enrolled? 

    CARE and FERA participants must re-enroll every two years. If you received a recertification notice in the mail, it’s time to re-enroll.
