Energy Assistance Fund (EAF)

Energy Assistance Fund – What is it?

Your Pennies Can Help Power a Home

Electricity is a basic necessity. Because of unexpected expenses, many customers find themselves facing financial hardship. The Energy Assistance Fund (EAF) is committed to providing critical support to those when they need it most.

In partnership with the United Way of Greater Los Angeles, we have provided one-time bill payments of up to $100 for nearly 250,000 qualified Southern California households since EAF started in 1982. Last year alone, 15,000 SCE customers received help.

Just a few pennies can make a difference.
