BACKGROUND: It's important for customers to understand why their electricity bills are changing. The key factors:
· The cost to generate or buy power is increasing: This cost increase is passed directly to the customer, and SCE doesn’t make a profit from this.
· Infrastructure investments: SCE is updating the grid to deliver safer and more dependable electricity.
· Rate design changes: Currently high-usage customers subsidize low-usage customers. With this upcoming change, costs will be more evenly spread among all of our customers.
PARKING: Parking is available in the center’s lot.
