We understand more people are staying home during these challenging times. For more control over your A/C during an energy event, we offer program options with override control.** These options allow you to opt out of an energy event if you are at home and still want to use your A/C. If you are currently enrolled, you can switch your eligible A/C unit to another plan option by updating your preferences.
When you sign up, SCE will install a remote-controlled device on or near your air conditioner at no cost to you. This will allow us to turn off or cycle your A/C unit during energy events throughout the year based on your program preferences. You’ll earn bill credits from June 1 to October 1 for participating.
*Estimated Bill Credit based on a typical 4.5 ton air conditioning unit. Actual bill credit could increase with larger units and decrease for smaller ones and will vary based on your level of participation and your equipment. Additional terms and conditions apply.
**Push-button override options not available on roof-mounted A/C units. Override may be used up to five times a year.
We may call an energy event in response to emergencies, overworked electrical grids, high wholesale energy prices, or as part of testing. An energy event can happen at any time during the year and may last up to 6 hours per day (with the possible exception of a system emergency).
You can find information about active or historical energy events at any time.
