Caring for the Environment
California is deeply committed to improved air and water quality, and so are we. SCE also protects biological and cultural resources and restores and preserves habitats.
From helping you go solar at home to expanding infrastructure so we can deliver you more renewable wind and solar power, we are committed to a cleaner energy future for California.
SCE administers one of the nation’s largest portfolios of energy efficiency programs and services that help our customers save energy and money. During the past five years, SCE has partnered with our customers to save nearly 7.6 billion kWh, enough energy to power over 1.1 million homes for a year. These savings reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 3.2 million metric tons, the equivalent of removing 684,000 cars from the road.
We support the goals set by California’s climate change law — AB 32 — and are working with state policymakers and other stakeholders to implement key elements of the law as cost-effectively as possible. This will allow us to continue providing a reliable and affordable supply of energy to meet our customers’ current and future electricity needs. At the federal level, we support comprehensive cap-and-trade legislation with consistent rules, reasonable timelines and other provisions to allow new technology to develop and minimize economic disruption. SCE is also investing in solutions to both mitigate and adapt to the impacts of climate change, making the electric grid and the communities we serve more resilient.
