ROSEMEAD, Calif., March 3, 2010 – Southern California Edison (SCE) will help its residential customers “follow the sun” with free classes on the California Solar Initiative (CSI) program and the incentives it offers to homeowners who decide to “go solar.”

Customers will learn about:

  • Solar energy basics
  • Benefits of installing a solar energy system

  • Financial incentives through the CSI program

These 90-minute, nontechnical, easy-to-understand classes are held at SCE Service Centers and other convenient locations throughout the utility’s service territory. They are free but require registration because space is limited. To register, visit or call (866) 970-9221.
