Charge Ready Home Installation Rebate Program - Southern California Edison (SCE)


About

A Reward for Fueling with Clean Energy

For a limited time, Southern California Edison (SCE) is offering a rebate program to help electric vehicle (EV) drivers offset the cost of installing and permitting the necessary electric infrastructure for certain types of home EV charging.

Through the Charge Ready Home Installation Rebate Program, residential customers can receive a rebate of up to $1,500 toward their out-of-pocket costs for the electrical upgrades and permitting fees necessary to allow installation of a Level 2 (240-volt) EV charging station. The rebate does not cover the cost of the charging stations, but it will help cover the cost of installing and permitting the charging station. The electrical upgrades eligible for the rebate may include a new 240-volt circuit and socket, new or upgraded panel, new meter socket, and permit fees. In order to receive the rebate, the applicant must be a customer of SCE and enroll in an eligible SCE Time-Of-Use (TOU) rate. TOU rates are based on the time of day and the season when electricity is used, and these rate plans can help customers manage their energy costs by taking advantage of lower rates during off-peak and super-off-peak periods.

Rebate Options

This program offers two different rebate options to suit the varying needs of EV drivers that have recently purchased or leased EVs. Find out more about residential rate plans on SCE's webpage for residential EV Rates

Increased Rebate: Up to $1,500

  • This option requires that SCE install a new dedicated meter for the EV. SCE will install the new meter at no additional cost to the customer (the costs are accounted for in the TOU-EV-1 rate), but this option will likely increase your EV installation costs
