We’re Southern California Edison
We are also looking ahead to create a 21st century power network that can handle California's changing energy needs. Sophisticated technologies will be delivering electricity more reliably than ever, keeping outages to a minimum, and facilitating our customers' choices in adopting new technologies to generate their own energy and monitoring and controlling their overall usage.

Tools to Manage Electricity Usage
We hear you! These days, families and businesses need more and better ways to monitor and manage energy use. We’re here to help, with tools like Budget Assistant, all designed to put more information – and more power – in your hands.
We believe that when the community thrives, everyone benefits. That’s why we invest millions of dollars and lots of volunteer manpower in local non-profits. In 2018, our parent company, Edison International, gave $20 million to community programs that make a difference in education, the environment, public safety & preparedness, and civic engagement.
