Green Rate Program

The volume of interest for both the 50% and 100% Green Rate program has currently exceeded the amount of capacity available from approved Green Rate resources. However, in the 4th Quarter of 2022, SCE expects to launch a new “request for offers” (RFO) for additional generation to support the increasing interest in the Green Rate program. Until new Green Rate resources are contracted, or otherwise ordered, or authorized by the Commission, SCE will maintain a waitlist from customers interested in participating in the Green Rate program. As capacity becomes available, SCE will enroll customers onto the Green Rate on a first-come, first-served basis. For more information or to be added to the waitlist, email: greenrate@sce.com.

The Green Rate program gives you the opportunity to purchase more of the energy you use from renewable sources. If you're unable to install solar panels on your roof, this might be a good solution to support the environment.

On behalf of Green Rate customers, we purchase additional solar energy to meet the needs of Green Rate participants from California developers within our service territory.

  • You may elect your level of participation (50% or 100% of energy usage)
  • Your energy costs are estimated to be 1.1 cents lower for each kilowatt hour (kWh) of usage that is served on the Green Rate. For the average bill of $160 per month (usage of 500 kWh), this equates to an extra $2.76 savings per month at 50% participation and $5.52 savings per month at 100% participation)
  • You may de-enroll from the Green Rate at any time without penalty
  • SCE's Green Rate program is Green-e® Energy certified and meets the environmental and consumer-protection standards set forth by the nonprofit Center for Resource Solutions. Learn more at www.green-e.org.
