Southern California Edison Supports Transportation Electrification

Accelerating the use of electric transportation will be key to achieving California’s air quality and climate change goals. As the grid becomes cleaner by relying on more renewable resources, electricity companies like Southern California Edison can make a big difference in reducing emissions from the transportation sector. We are supporting the use of electric vehicles through the deployment of charging infrastructure, vehicle rebates, attractive rate options for EV drivers and adoption of electric cars and trucks into our own vehicle fleet.

SCE provides $450 rebate for new and used electric vehicles, putting electric vehicles within reach of more people. Learn more here.

Southern California Edison: How to Build EV-Ready Communities
With more than 500,000 plug-in electric vehicles (PEVs) and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) on California’s roads,1 and millions more to come, many local officials understand that getting their communities EV-ready is not only a sustainability best practice but also an economic development opportunity. California is leading the EV adoption trend within the United States, with approximately half of all EVs on the road in the U.S. registered here.
