We're Electrifying Transportation

Charge Ready

Our utility, Southern California Edison, has been partnering with businesses, local governments and other organizations to help increase the availability of electric vehicle charging stations at locations where people park their cars for extended periods of time.

SCE installs, maintains and covers installation costs for charging infrastructure, while participants own, operate and maintain the charging stations. The program also provides rebates toward the purchase of charging stations.


Charge Ready | Transport

Charge Ready Transport will help grow the transportation electrification market over a five-year period by installing electric infrastructure at customer sites to support charging plug-in buses, medium- and heavy-duty trucks, forklifts and other non-road cargo handling equipment.

Charge Ready Transport will also provide rebates toward the purchase of charging stations.

Charge Ready | Home Installation Rebate

This pilot offers rebates to approximately 4,000 SCE residential customers who wire their homes for electric vehicle charging. The rebates should alleviate one of the major barriers to the adoption of personal electric vehicles – the cost of installing home charging stations. The rebates are for single-family residences or smaller multi-unit dwellings with dedicated garage or parking lot spaces for EV charging.

Charge Ready | DC Fast Charge

Fast chargers can reduce charging times to as little as 30 minutes for a full charge. SCE will promote the growth of fast charging by working with program participants to install fastcharging stations at five sites that are accessible to all drivers.

Charge Ready | Transit Bus

Fossil-fuel powered buses are a significant source of air pollution in urban communities. This program for government transit agencies is funding the cost of installing infrastructure to support electric bus charging at bus yards. Efforts are focused on transit systems in underserved communities that are disproportionately impacted by air pollution from buses.

Charge Ready | Port Electrification

At the Port of Long Beach, SCE is installing infrastructure for the electrification of equipment used to move goods containers around the port. This equipment is currently powered by diesel engines, which are a significant source of air pollution.

lb-port-gantry

Rubber tire gantry cranes: Diesel-powered gantry cranes, which are used to move shipping containers, are being electrified. These machines have been identified as the second largest source of nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions at the terminal.

lb-port-tractors

Yard tractors: SCE will install charging ports in freight yards to transition the tractors that move shipping containers around the port facility from diesel to zeroemission electricity.


Charge Ready 2 Filing

SCE has filed a proposal to expand Charge Ready to support the installation of 48,000 more charging ports. The proposed $760 million program would continue over four years.

Charge Ready TE Infrastructure Programs

Charge Ready programs support the expansion of electric vehicle charging at homes, workplaces, schools and public places, as well as fleet and industrial vehicle charging.
