SCE has completed processing almost all summer customer bills that include the state's 20/20 conservation rebate when applicable.  33% of residential bills and 32% of all bills included the 20/20 rebate as a result of reduced energy consumption of 20% or more relative to the same period of the previous year.  Following is SCE's response by Senior Vice President of Customer Service Pam Bass as well as the latest 20/20 data.

ROSEMEAD, Calif., Nov. 2, 2001-We commend the manner and extent to which our customers have responded to the conservation challenge of the summer of 2001.  They deserve enormous credit for helping ensure adequate electric power supplies throughout the state during what was predicted to be a very difficult summer.
