Energy Saving Programs Continue to Help SCE Customers Save Money
With the income requirements for several energy saving programs increasing, Southern California Edison (SCE) encourages its customers to check out these programs so they can save money on their utility bills.
Starting June 1, the maximum-allowable income requirements for the California Alternate Rate for Energy (CARE) and the Family Electric Rate Assistance (FERA) programs have increased. The CARE program can save customers about 30 percent on their utility bill, while FERA provides a lower monthly discount for income-qualified households of three or more based on their energy usage.
“We want to ensure that our customers know about the various programs that can help reduce costs and save them money,” said Jack Parkhill, SCE manager for the Income Qualified and Economic Assistance Program. “With the income criteria increasing, more of our customers may be able to meet the requirements and qualify for one of the programs.”
