How does Power Share work?

Qualifying customers will receive a 20% discount on top of other electric bill discounts they may already receive, including the California Alternate Rates for Energy (CARE) or Family Electric Rates Assistance (FERA) programs. The 20% Power Share discount will be applied to the customer’s already discounted CARE or FERA rate, for a total bill discount of approximately 35% to 45%

I get my bill from Southern California Edison. How can CPA give me a discount?

Clean Power Alliance purchases clean power that Southern California Edison (SCE) delivers through its transmission network. Your monthly electric bill from Southern California Edison (SCE) includes CPA charges for electric supply along with SCE charges for delivery of the electricity to your home. The 20% Power Share discount will appear on the CPA portion of your bill.

Do I have to buy or install anything?

No. Enrolling in the Power Share program does not require you to purchase or install any equipment. This program is funded by the California Public Utilities Commission and is provided to qualified customers free of charge. The purpose of the program is to help customers and communities in need.

How do you decide what a disadvantaged community is?

The State of California has defined what qualifies as a “Disadvantaged Community.” In the definition, the State considers areas that are most impacted by environmental, economic, and health burdens. You can learn more on the CPUC’s website: CPUC.CA.GOV/DISCOM/

I’m not enrolled in CARE or FERA. Can I still participate?

Yes. If you are eligible for CARE or FERA, but not enrolled, you may still participate in Power Share if you meet the other Power Share program requirements. You will need to either enroll in CARE or FERA, or, certify that you are eligible for one of these programs. We encourage you to enroll in CARE or FERA if you are eligible, in order to benefit from the CARE/FERA discount of 18% to 30% on your monthly energy bill in addition to the 20% Power Share discount.
