Upgrading the Electric Grid
Smarter grids and new technology are making power more dependable, safer, and cleaner.
Helping California reach its goal of 1.5 million zero-emission vehicles on the road by 2025.
Are environmental goals compatible with economic prosperity?
Yes, and we believe it's our responsibility to help devise the solutions.
Our Views: Practical Energy Policy for the Future
When it comes to public policy on energy, legislation formed today will exert implications well into the future. While our focus as a company is to safely produce and deliver reliable and affordable electricity, we’re also working to help policymakers create informed, practical public policy for California and our nation, based on a thorough understanding of associated costs and tradeoffs.
"We’re here to engage in open, inclusive discussion about energy policy. Let’s look together at long-term implications and arrive at solid, practical decisions."
— Theodore (Ted) F. Craver, Jr., chairman and CEO, Edison International
We Must Keep Moving Toward Electric Vehicles, Even as Gas Prices Dip
The cost of a gallon of gasoline has fallen recently, but our nation's petroleum habit remains expensive, polluting, and is making us sick. And, according to the Department of Energy's calculator, fueling a car with electricity in California costs about one-third the price of a tank of gasoline at current prices.
Building the 21st-Century Power System
"Our challenge is to figure out how to provide electricity with little environmental impact and without choking off growth and job creation. Energy fuels economic growth, so we need to provide it affordably." — Theodore (Ted) F. Craver, Jr., chairman and CEO, Edison International
Key Trends Driving Change in the Electric Power Industry
"All of us in the energy arena need to work together as never before to build a system that benefits all customers. It’s imperative that we get this right." — Pedro J. Pizarro, President, Edison International
OUR PERSPECTIVE: ADVANCES
The Next Generation Grid & Integrating Renewable Power from Distributed Resources
The energy industry is changing. As Edison International CEO Ted Craver sees it, more change is coming in the next 10 years than in all of the last century combined. These short clips offer insight into his perspective on advances that will give consumers more control, enable two-way flow of electricity, and boost the reliability and flexibility of the grid.
Ted Craver Shares His Perspective at the Future of Energy Summit 2016
“We’ve focused our investments at the utility for really the last several years on the wires part, the network, if you will,” he said. “And the purpose of that is actually to facilitate a lot of the new technologies that are coming online.”
Committed to the Community: Delivering the Renewables that Californians Want
More than most U.S. states, California is focused on reducing carbon greenhouse gas emissions. In addition to modernizing the grid to help California stand at the forefront in carbon reduction and greenhouse gas reduction, our utility is also helping consumers and policymakers understand the tradeoffs involved.
The Future of Solar Energy: Our Perspective
Chairman & CEO Ted Craver discussed the company's strategy to support customer choices in solar, with host Russell Gold at the Wall Street Journal's ECO:nomics forum.
The Big Picture: Change & Growth
Energy is the foundation of economic growth. For utilities nationwide, today’s challenge is to deliver sufficient quantities of electricity in ways that are both cost-effective and environmentally responsible.
Distributed Solar Generation & the Grid
At the Wall Street Journal's ECO:nomics forum, Ted Craver discusses advanced grids and the two-way flow of electricity.
A Look Ahead: Modernizing the Grid
Our utility is investing $4 billion to $4.5 billion each year to modernize Southern California’s grid. The next-generation grid will put more power in the hands of consumers, and set the stage for greater efficiency.
