Save more with
the smart
energy program.

Enjoy energy savings and up to $125 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 $125. Plus, your ongoing program participation can earn you annual bill credits of up to $40.

How the Smart Energy Program works:

  • During an SCE Energy Event, we will notify your smart thermostat provider to adjust the temperature setting on your thermostat to limit A/C usage. Events can be called anytime throughout the year for up to four hours per day. Multiple events can be called in one day, but the total cannot exceed a maximum of four hours per day.
  • Earn up to $40 in bill credits yearly for participating from June 1 through September 30.
  • You can adjust the temperature during energy events.*
