The Cool Planet Project: Leading the Way
Southern California Edison (SCE) and The Climate Registry (The Registry) present The Cool Planet Project, a program which encourages large industrial customers located in SCE’s service territory to install energy efficiency (EE) projects, in turn reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Participating customers are rewarded with a membership to The Climate Registry, which supplies cost effective, user-friendly assistance to measure organizations' GHG footprint. Needless to say, they are also rewarded with the energy savings and incentives from the installed projects.
Being a leader means staying ahead of the curve. As an environmental leader you’ll gain the competitive advantage that comes from lowering your operating costs and being prepared for new regulations in a carbon-constrained world. You’ll also reap the benefits of the goodwill you build through doing the right thing for our planet.
As a member of The Cool Planet Project, you’ll receive one year’s complimentary membership to The Registry. You’ll also have access to the right tools and knowledge to reduce energy use, along with PR and marketing services to publicize your good efforts.
Other Cool Planet Project benefits:
- Up to 50% of project costs paid by SCE
- Financial assistance towards third party verification
- Reduction of GHG emissions through reduced energy usage
- Readiness for new regulations and the tools to manage risk
- Cost effective tools for reporting your (GHG) profile
- GHG baseline protection and documentation of early actions & reductions
- Preparation for GHG emissions trading
- Education for success in a carbon-constrained world

Clients in receipt of benefits are responsible for any additional fees (e.g., (GHG) analysis verification and reporting fees) with The Climate Registry and GHG verification.
Install EE projects that save over 500,000 kWh annually, then learn about program details, benefits and next steps from your SCE Account Representative.
