June 25, 2014

Media Contact: Lauren Bartlett, (626) 302-2255

Advisory for Monday, June 30
 

WHAT: Southern California Edison (SCE) will hold a briefing to explain changes this summer to residential customer bills. A rates expert will explain the key factors impacting rates.

WHEN: 10:30 a.m.-noon, June 30.

WHERE: Ontario Senior Center, 225 E. B St., Class Room 1, Ontario. Map

WHO:

  • Russ Worden, a director in the SCE rates group, will give a presentation and answer questions.

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.
