ROSEMEAD, Calif., June 14, 2011 — Southern California Edison (SCE) is hosting a free solar class for residential customers considering purchasing a solar electric generating system for their homes. The class will be 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Monday, June 20, at the Los Angeles County Arboretum & Botanic Garden, 301 N. Baldwin Ave., Arcadia.
The California Solar Initiative, or CSI, offers rebates to customers of the state’s major investor-owned utilities — SCE, Pacific Gas and Electric and San Diego Gas & Electric — who install solar equipment at their homes or businesses. The program’s goal is to promote solar-generated electricity and move California toward a clean energy future.

Customers will learn about:

  • Solar energy basics.
  • The benefits of installing a solar energy system.
  • Financial incentives available through the CSI program.
  • Tax credits and financial models that can help reduce costs.

The 90-minute, nontechnical and easy-to-understand classes are held at convenient locations throughout SCE’s 50,000-square-mile service territory. Classes are free, but require registration because space is limited. Customers are advised to confirm their reservations, as the classes are subject to change. To register or get more information, visit or call (866) 970-9221.
