To support California’s zero-emission policies, the Charge Ready Program is making the installation of electric vehicle (EV) charging stations easier and more cost effective for businesses and properties in our service territory. Due to overwhelming interest and limited program funding, the Charge Ready Program is now only accepting applications from Multi-Unit Dwellings. Submit your multi-unit dwelling application today using the link below, and an SCE Account Representative will contact you to walk you through the next steps.
