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.

Energy Assistance Fund (EAF)

Increased Assistance Available for Customers Impacted by COVID-19

Southern California Edison will provide increased Energy Assistance Fund (EAF) amounts for customers impacted by COVID-19. The maximum EAF amount is being increased to $200 (up from $100) and $300 for all electric households (up from $200).

Income qualified customers experiencing hardship due to quarantine, illness (including caring for loved ones), or business closures are eligible for EAF assistance. 

All normal EAF qualification requirements remain the same.

Customers that received EAF assistance within the last year do not qualify.

Note: Energy assistance funds will be available until funds are depleted. Funds are limited.

Energy Assistance Fund – What is it?

Your Pennies Can Help Power a Home

Electricity is a basic necessity. Because of unexpected expenses, many customers find themselves facing financial hardship. The Energy Assistance Fund (EAF) is committed to providing critical support to those when they need it most.

In partnership with the United Way of Greater Los Angeles, we have provided one-time bill payments of up to $100 for nearly 250,000 qualified Southern California households since EAF started in 1982. Last year alone, 15,000 SCE customers received help.

Just a few pennies can make a difference.
