Our Energy Supply

SCE is a national leader in clean energy. An estimated 48% of the power we delivered to customers in 2019 came from carbonfree sources.2 Of that, approximately 73% (35% of total delivered power) came from renewable resources eligible under
California’s RPS requirements.3 In 2019, our delivered power emitted approximately 45% fewer GHG emissions per unit of electricity compared to the U.S. national average. Between 2005 and 2019, SCE’s GHG emissions from delivered power fell by an estimated 48% due to increased renewable energy in our portfolio.

In 2019, SCE was named a leader in solar by the Smart Electric Power Alliance (SEPA), for the 12th consecutive year. We were also named as the top electric utility for the second year in a row for annual energy storage capacity. Our customers are playing an important role in the transition to renewable energy.
