Once enrolled in the Pilot, your Submeter Meter Data Management Agent (MDMA) will collect and transmit your submeter usage data to us for billing. You will retain sole responsibility for paying the entire monthly bill including EV and other charges regardless of any agreement between you and your Submeter MDMA.

Phase 1 FAQs
Can I view my EV submeter usage on My Account, Green Button or Budget Assistant on SCE.com?
Submetering usage will appear on your billing statement but may or may not be visible or accurate on MyAccount, Green Button, or Budget Assistant because the submeter billing usage and cost information is only calculated once per billing cycle.
Who is responsible for the installation of my new submeter?
You are responsible for the installation of your submeter in a timely manner.
- If there is a delay in installing the submeter after your established pilot start date, that time is still counted as part of your maximum 12 billing cycle participation period.
- If any submeter interval data is not received after the start date as a result of a delay in installing the submeter, those intervals will be considered as “zero” by SCE when calculating your primary and EV submeter monthly bills.
Will my Submeter MDMA receive a summary of my monthly EV bill?
No, unless you authorize SCE to send your MDMA a summary of your monthly electric vehicle (EV) bill.
Will my bill clearly state my usage from both my Primary meter and EV Submeter?
You are the customer-of-record for both your primary meter and submeter. Your energy usage totals for both meters will appear on a single billing statement for 12 billing cycles. To bill the EV charging usage on the appropriate rate schedule, we created a new Service Account # which will be reflected on your billing statement. At the conclusion of the pilot, we will close the EV Service Account # and resume billing your total usage, including EV charging, on your Primary Service Account and rate.
I am thinking about enrolling in Direct Payment. Can I still participate in the pilot?
Will I need to provide access to my EV submeter at my home or business during the pilot?
To evaluate your EV Submetering Customer Experience, you may be required to provide access to your home or business in order for an independent third party evaluator to perform tests on your EV submeter. Such submeter testing is only required of 5% of participating customers. If your submeter is selected, tests will be arranged at a convenient time, and your EV Submeter MDMA may be present.
If I move but remain an SCE customer, can I continue in the Pilot? How do I do that?
Yes, you can continue for the remainder of your 12 consecutive billing cycles. Your Submeter MDMA must submit a new Customer Enrollment Agreement for you to update your information.
If I move and do NOT remain an SCE customer, can I continue in the Pilot? How do I do that?
Yes, if you are moving into PG&E or SDG&E territory and they have NOT filled their 500 customer participation cap, you can participate. Contact your Submeter MDMA to submit a new customer enrollment form to the appropriate Investor Owned Utility (PG&E or SDG&E).
If your current Submeter MDMA does not participate in your new territory, contact the appropriate Investor Owned Utility for a list of approved Submeter MDMA’s in your territory.
