How to Submit a Claim to SCE

If you have suffered a loss or damage due to recent service interruption, and believe we may be responsible, you may submit a claim. How to submit your claim >

We investigate and evaluate each claim individually, and our policy is to respond promptly.

Long Beach Update

As of 12:30 p.m. today, 72 customers remained without service. Our crews continue to work around the clock, and service is expected to be restored to those customers at about 4 p.m. today. We will continue to use generators to provide power to customers until final repairs are made. As the underground network system is restored, we will transition these customers off the generators. When this happens, these customers will experience a short power outage, which could last up to 45 minutes for most. These actions are to ensure they are connected back to the network properly and in a safe manner. We encourage customers in Long Beach to make every effort to conserve use of electricity as we continue to return the system to its full operational capacity. We reopened its distribution center at Cesar Chavez community center at 8 a.m. today to distribute ice and water. The safety of the public and our crews remain our highest priority. We thank the city of Long Beach for its cooperation and for the safety efforts of first responders in the Long Beach Fire and Police departments. Get the latest update >

Generating Your Own Energy

Whether you want to find savings or go green in your business, you have options for generating your own energy. From solar power to fuel cell systems, you have the power and the opportunity for incentives to go with it.

 

Generate Some Options

Energy needs vary depending on climate and the type of business you’re in. Some of our business customers choose to generate their own energy during peak demand when rates are higher. Renewable sources are available for our environmentally conscious customers. Cogeneration, or combined heat and power – is another option to service needs for business customers with high thermal energy.

 

Self-Generation Incentive Program

If your business or residence is an SCE customer and you are interested in reducing your onsite electrical demand, you can receive a cash incentive from 50 cents to $4.25 per watt for installing your own, qualifying electricity generating equipment under our Self Generation Incentive Program (SGIP).

Generating systems under 30 kW were formerly provided incentives under the California Energy Commission's Emerging Renewables Program (ERP).  However, ERP has been discontinued and incentives for renewable self-generation units under 30 kW are now provided through the SGIP.

 

Get Rewarded for Renewables

Net energy metering is how your business’ renewable energy system helps lower your monthly electricity bill. A net energy meter tracks the difference between the electricity you generate through your facility’s solar or other renewable energy source and the electricity you use through SCE. You’ll see a lower energy bill and if you generate more electricity than you use, the excess will flow back to the grid and you’ll receive a bill credit.
