Long Beach Update

As of Friday night, we have restored service to most of the 260 customers that were without service by connecting generators. The handful of remaining customers will be without power overnight. Unfortunately, some locations are not able to be connected to generators because of equipment issues at the building or the location's accessibility. Our crews have made significant progress conducting detailed inspections on more than 300 vaults. As of 10 pm, 94% of these inspections have been completed. Once inspections are complete, the results will be analyzed and a network remediation plan will be developed. We continue to make repairs on the equipment. 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. 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 >

California’s Electric Program Investment Charge (EPIC)

Investment in Technology Demonstration & Deployment

The California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) established the Electric Program Investment Charge (EPIC) to provide funding for public interest investments in applied research and development, technology demonstration and deployment, and the market facilitation of clean energy technologies and approaches that benefit the electricity ratepayers of Southern California Edison (SCE), Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E), and San Diego Gas & Electric (SDG&E).

The annual EPIC budget of $162 million is collected from ratepayers in electric utility distribution rates at the following levels:

  • SCE (41.1%)
  • PG&E (50.1%)
  • SDG&E (8.8%)


EPIC Investment Plans

The California Energy Commission (CEC) will administer 80% of the funding with the ability to invest in all of the approved EPIC activities. SCE, PG&E and SDG&E will administer 20% of the funding in an amount proportional to their respective collections and are limited to investing only in technology demonstration and deployment activities.
