ROSEMEAD, Calif., Sept. 15, 2010 — Southern California Edison (SCE) has increased the rebate from $200 to $300 for customers who buy a qualified energy-efficient pool pump.

“We hope that the higher rebate will be the extra nudge customers need to upgrade to a more efficient pool pump,” said Gene Rodrigues, SCE’s director, Energy Efficiency and Solar Division. “An energy-efficient pool pump uses just half the electricity as an older model, so in just a short time the new equipment can pay for itself. It’s a win for the consumer and a win for the environment.”

The $300 rebate is offered to SCE customers on qualified pool pumps and motors purchased between Sept. 3 and Dec. 31, 2010, and installed between Sept. 3, 2010 and Feb. 28, 2011. The rebates are available on a first-come, first-served basis while funding lasts and is for single-family residences only. After Dec. 31, the rebate will return to $200. Customers can call (800) 436-4777 or visit to learn more.

SCE is one of the nation’s leading utilities for energy efficiency. In the past five years, SCE customers have saved more than 5.6 billion kilowatt-hours through the company’s programs and services, such as rebates for energy-efficient equipment and appliances.
