This fund will provide grants of up to $100 per year to help customers who can't pay their electric bills. While $100 may not seem like much, the Energy Assistance Fund is just one more resource that people can turn to and that can provide aid. The grants are administered by various assistance agencies across California. This assistance program is funded by donations from customers, Edison International (which is SCE's publicly held parent company) and also SCE employees themselves.
The Energy Assistance Fund – Helping SCE Customers since 1982
Southern California Edison (SCE) is committed to helping customers when they need it the most. Since 1982, SCE has provided financial assistance to income-qualified customers through the Energy Assistance Fund (EAF), SCE’s non-profit and only direct payment assistance program.
SCE partners with United Way of Greater Los Angeles to administer the fund. United Way of Greater Los Angeles disburses the funds to qualified, low-income SCE customers through a network of approximately 80 community-based organizations throughout SCE's service
