Save more with
the smart
energy program.

Enjoy energy savings and up to $150 when you purchase a smart thermostat.

There’s never been a smarter way to save energy and money with a smart thermostat. When you purchase a qualifying energy-efficient smart thermostat and successfully enroll in the Smart Energy Program through one of our authorized service providers, you can earn up to $150. Plus, your ongoing program participation can earn you annual bill credits of up to $40 or more.

How the Smart Energy Program works:

  • During an SCE Energy Event, we will notify your smart thermostat service provider to adjust the temperature setting on your thermostat to limit A/C usage. Events can be called anytime throughout the year between 11 a.m. and 8 p.m. for a minimum of one hour and up to four hours, per day, on non-holiday weekdays. Multiple events per day can be called but cannot exceed a maximum of four hours per day.
  • Earn up to $40 in bill credits yearly for participating from June 1 to October 1, plus get additional savings during energy events.
  • You can choose to adjust the thermostat temperature at your discretion, but your savings may be impacted.
