Project Spotlight

  • Charge Ready - An image with an electric car charging

    Charge Ready

    To support California’s zero-emission policies, we’re revving up Charge Ready: Our program to help increase the availability of electric vehicle (EV) charging stations at certain locations where cars are typically parked for four hours or more. We’ll be working with local government agencies, employers, multi-unit dwellings, and charging equipment manufacturers to roll out the program.Visit our Charge Ready web page to learn more about the program

  • Zero Net Energy - Picture of an enegry efficient house

    Zero Net Energy Homes

    A Zero Net Energy (ZNE) home or building is one whose annual energy consumption is no greater than its annual energy generation. The state of California wants all new residential construction to meet ZNE standards by 2020 and all new commercial buildings to meet ZNE standards by 2030, along with 50% of existing commercial floor space. It's part of the state's multi-faceted battle plan against greenhouse gas emissions. Our utility, Southern California Edison, is helping to build a path to meeting this ambitious goal through demonstration projects that test ZNE feasibility on a mass scale and gauge ZNE’s impact on the utility distribution grid
