If you are a Southern California Edison (SCE) customer who is actively taking part in the utility’s Save Power Day program, you can earn up to $100 in bill credits over 12 months, all while helping to conserve some energy.

SCE has called a Save Power Day for Monday, Sept. 8 and participating customers received notifications by phone, email or text. On this day, customers will be asked to conserve energy between the hours of 2-6 p.m.

“The Save Power Day program is a great way for SCE customers to earn credits on their electricity bills, while doing their part to conserve energy,” said Mark Wallenrod, SCE director of Program Operations. “We encourage customers to let their family and friends know about the program too.”

This is the fourth Save Power Day SCE has called so far this year. The other days included Sept. 2, Aug. 4 and July 14. 

To sign up for the Save Power Day program, go to: SCE.com/takeaction. Customers can choose how they would like to be notified: phone, email or text.

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.
  • Avoid air conditioner use when evaporative coolers or humidifiers are running.
  • Operating energy-intensive appliances during early morning or evening hours.
  • Limiting how often you open your refrigerator door.
