You, or someone you know, may qualify for a free replacement energy-efficient refrigerator, lighting, cooling system or various energy conservation services that can help save money on your Southern California Edison electricity bill.

Through the Energy Savings Assistance Program, income-qualified customers may be eligible for free appliances and no-cost installation. Customers may qualify based on current participation in an eligible public assistance program or their household income.


Last year, more than 74,000 SCE households participated in the Energy Savings Assistance Program, saving more than 27 million kilowatt-hours and reducing demand by 4,443 kilowatts.

“SCE offers rate discount, energy-efficiency and other assistance programs to income-qualified customers across our service area needing support to meet their energy needs,” said Mark Wallenrod, SCE director of Program Operations. “With nearly one-third of our customers eligible, we want to ensure that as many qualified households participate and take advantage of these no-cost programs to help lower their energy bills.”

Based on the customer’s area of residence, free energy-saving products and services provided by the Energy Savings Assistance Program may include:


Central or room air conditioner

Evaporative cooler

Pool pump

Energy-efficient lighting

Smart power strip

Weatherization services

Customers can learn more about energy savings assistance and other income-qualified programs at sce.com/billhelp, sce.com/esap or call 1-800-736-4777.
