Southern California Edison (“SCE”) is pleased to announce it intends to launch the 2021 Distributed Energy Resources (DERs) Standard Offer Contract (SOC) Request for Offers (RFO) on September 15, 2021, for the purpose of procuring DERs at specific location(s) on its distribution system.

SCE is conducting this RFO pursuant to a California Public Utilities Commission (“CPUC”) Decision (“D.”), CPUC D.21-02-006.

2021 DERs SOC RFO Website

SCE will be using PowerAdvocate® for the RFO website. Further information on the 2021 DERs SOC RFO is available on PowerAdvocate®. Offerors intending to submit Offers, but do not yet have an existing PowerAdvocate® account, must first register to create a username/password with PowerAdvocate® to receive access to the event (event #: 127544).

SCE strongly encourages Offerors who do not have an existing account to establish one well before the Offer Submission Deadline, as it may take some time.
