Our response to COVID-19
We’ve made some changes due to COVID-19, including suspending service disconnections for residential and small business customers for nonpayment, and only continuing critical work needed to protect public safety and reduce the risk of wildfires. Learn more here. If you have recently lost your job, even if you are receiving unemployment benefits, you may qualify for a reduced energy rate through our CARE or FERA programs. Learn more.

Relicensing Documents

Pre-Application Document

On May 1, 2019, Southern California Edison Company filed with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) its formal Notice of Intent (NOI) to file an Application for New License for the Bishop Creek Project (FERC Project No. 1394) and a Pre-Application Document (PAD). These documents were e-filed with FERC and are available through FERC’s eLibrary or available for download below. If you have difficulty accessing or downloading files please contact Matt Woodhall at 626-302-9596 or matthew.woodhall@sce.com.

Study Plan Determination

  • SCE request for expedited study plan determination: On September 4, 2019, SCE filed a letter requesting a waiver of sections 5.11 and 5.12 of the FERC’s regulations to expedite the study plan process. The waiver was intended to shorten the study plan determination process by four months to provide more time for SCE and the stakeholders to collaboratively assess project effects and develop proposed license conditions during the pre-filing period. On October 3, 2019, FERC staff granted the waiver request and established a deadline of October 18, 2019, for stakeholders to file comments on the RSP. No comments on the revised study plan were filed.
  • FERC Study Plan Determination: On November 4, 2019, SCE’s Revised Study Plan was approved, with one FERC staff-recommended modification (discussed in Appendix B).

Progress Reports

As outlined in the Technical Study Plan, these quarterly reports are distributed to the Technical Working Groups and FERC and are intended to be brief, technical memoranda that will summarize work completed to date, any deviations from previously described methods, and any unforeseen issues that may warrant further stakeholder consultation.
