September 04, 2013

With Southern Californians continuing to deal with several days of temperatures in the high 90s and 100s, Southern California Edison (SCE) has called another Save Power Day so customers can save money while conserving energy. ​

The utility has called a Save Power Day for Sept. 5 where during the hours from 2-6 p.m. residential customers can save some money on their electricity bills while helping save energy for everyone.

“The Save Power Day program is a great way for our customers to save money while conserving energy,” said Mark Wallenrod, SCE director of program operations. “Signing up is easy and we encourage customers to tell their family members and friends about the cost-saving program.”

When a Save Power Day is called, residential customers can earn up to $100 a year by conserving energy during the peak hours between 2-6 p.m. SCE customers can receive Save Power Day alerts via phone, email or text. To sign up for Save Power Day alerts, customers can visit

On the days designated Save Power Days, customers who have signed up for the alerts will receive a message the day before. Customers earn $0.75 per kilowatt hour reduced between 2-6 p.m.

Some ways customers can conserve energy include:

  • Setting or programming thermostats no lower than 78 degrees.
  • Using electric fans instead of air conditioning when practical.
  • Turning off unused appliances and equipment.
  • Shutting off lights when leaving a room.
  • Avoiding evaporative coolers or humidifiers when an air conditioner is running.
  • Operating energy-intensive appliances during early morning or evening hours.
  • Limiting how often you open your refrigerator door.
