Energy Efficiency Customized Solutions

Customized Solutions are more tailored equipment upgrades that can help you attain deeper savings and higher incentive payments. Incentives are based on how much energy you save over a 12-month period, not to exceed 50% of the total project cost. The energy savings may translate into lower energy bills. While Customized Solutions is available to all business customers, regardless of size or energy use, tailored equipment is most often found in mid- to large-sized businesses. Express and Customized Solutions can also be combined under the scope of a single upgrade project.

How to Apply

The Customized Solutions application process requires you complete an application, including estimated savings calculations, in advance of the project (before installation). To simplify this process, our Online Application tool will calculate energy savings for common Customized Solutions.

What Happens Next

Upon receipt of your application, an SCE contractor will arrange a pre-inspection of existing equipment. The SCE contractor will review the application and if approved, a Project Approval Letter and Installation Report will be sent to you for signing. You can then proceed to install the project exactly as proposed in your approved application. Once installed, complete the Installation Report and return it to SCE along with all other required supporting documentation. Find out if you’re eligible.

On-Bill Financing for Business

Our On-Bill Financing program helps your business fund efficiency projects over time. Through this program, you may qualify for loans to implement eligible measures and upgrades, then repay in monthly installments through your utility bill, with no interest or fees. In some cases, you may combine this program with additional financial incentives that offer your business even greater access to an efficient future.

Are You Eligible?

Good news: as an SCE customer, your commercial, industrial, agricultural, or non-profit business is automatically eligible for Customized Solutions. Self-generation customers may also qualify for incentives. Get all the details in our Solutions Directory.

Find the equipment you want to install in our Solutions Directory. The Solution Directory is available on the Online Application Tool. The Online Application Tool offers several benefits that save time, simplifies the application process, and provides timely program updates.

Additional Terms

Incentives are paid on a first-come, first-served basis until the Customized Solutions program expires or until funds are exhausted or the measure(s) expires, whichever occurs first. Equipment purchased with the intent of resale is not eligible for the incentives.

Incentives cannot be paid on energy savings which exceed the energy purchased from SCE during the prior 12 months. Non-SCE supply, such as cogeneration or deliveries from another commodity supplier, does not qualify as usage from SCE (with the exception of Direct Access customers or customers paying departing load fees for which SCE collects PPP surcharges).

Incentives are based on two factors:

1. The energy savings resulting from the project, as measured above and beyond baseline energy performance, which includes state-mandated codes, federal-mandated codes, industry-accepted performance standards, or other baseline energy performance standards as determined by SCE.

2. The amount of permanent DEER (Database for Energy Efficient Resources) peak demand reduction resulting from the project. The database contains information on selected energy-efficient technologies and measures, and provides estimates of the energy-savings potential for these technologies in residential and non-residential applications. For more information on DEER peak demand reduction, refer to the Customized Calculated Savings Guidelines for Non-Residential Programs which is available on the Online Application Tool.
