Savings Incentive Programs for Homes

When you help us save energy, we help you save money with Demand Response programs.

What is Demand Response?

Get to Know These Programs

SCE Demand Response Programs

Smart Energy Program

This program is a year-round, event-based program that gives incentives to customers with qualifying smart thermostats enrolled through one of our authorized service providers. During a DR Event, we’ll notify your smart thermostat provider to adjust the temperature setting on your thermostat to limit A/C usage. You’ll earn annual bill credits of up to $40, plus additional savings during energy events.

Summer Discount Plan

The Summer Discount Plan is a year-round, event-based program which allows SCE to turn or cycle off customers’ air conditioners. In return, customers have the opportunity to earn up to $180 in bill credits on their summer season bills, depending on the size of the air conditioner. There’s no cost to enroll or participate in this program.
