Clean Power Alliance's COVID-19 Relief Program

Clean Power Alliance is here to help our customers during COVID-19. We understand choosing between rent, bills, and groceries or payroll is a situation no family or small business should have to face, especially during a crisis.

We believe our customers deserve reliable and affordable electricity with manageable payments. That's why we’re allocating $1 million in bill assistance to COVID-19 impacted customers who sign up for financial assistance through Southern California Edison (SCE). We’re committed to supporting our communities most in need and doing our part during this difficult time. Customers not eligible for Clean Power Alliance’s COVID-19 Relief Program, please visit SCE’s website for other resources.

How it Works

Residential Customers

If you're a Clean Power Alliance residential customer who recently became unemployed, have reduced income, or are experiencing economic hardship due to COVID-19, extra help is available for you.

Your Options:

1. Clean Power Alliance will provide a one-time $25 bill credit to residential customers who sign up for CARE, FERA, or Medical Baseline assistance through SCE on or after March 16.

2. Already on CARE, FERA, or Medical Baseline? Great, Clean Power Alliance will give you a one-time $25 bill credit if you sign up for a payment plan through SCE on or after March 16.

No need to notify Clean Power Alliance once you sign up for the CARE, FERA, or Medical Baseline programs, or a payment plan. SCE will notify us when your program enrollment or payment plan is set up, and then Clean Power Alliance will automatically apply your $25 bill credit as soon as your next electric bill. You can still get this electric bill assistance even if you're also receiving unemployment benefits.

Small Business Customers

We also want to support our small businesses who have had to reduce hours or temporarily close due to COVID-19. Clean Power Alliance will give a one-time $50 bill credit to small business customers (on GS-1 or GS-2 rates) who sign up for a payment plan through SCE on or after March 16.

No need to notify Clean Power Alliance once you sign up for a payment plan. SCE will notify us when your payment plan is set up, and then Clean Power Alliance will automatically apply your $50 bill credit as soon as your next electric bill. You can still get this electric bill assistance even if you're also receiving federal CARES Act benefits.

Who to Contact

Clean Power Alliance will provide bill credits on a first-come, first-served basis until funds are exhausted. To sign up for a payment plan, please call SCE today at 800-655-4555.

California Climate Credit

An additional electricity bill resource for COVID-19 relief is the California Climate Credit, which is an automatic $37 bi-annual bill discount to all electricity customers.

Normally, the credits are applied in April and October, but the October 2020 credits were expedited to go out in May and June 2020 to help customers receive the extra relief needed. For details, click here.
