Case Study11:15 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. :: Case Study: Southern California Edison’s Charge Ready Program

Over the past two years, Southern California Edison has supported the expansion of electric vehicle charging throughout its service territory through its innovative suite of Charge Ready infrastructure programs. This program is helping move California closer to its objective of putting 5 million zero-emission vehicles on the road by 2030, which in turn supports the state’s goals to reduce greenhouse gases and improve local air quality. This session will include:

  • Overview of Charge Ready programs
  • Successes and challenges
  • What’s Ahead: Expansion of Charge Ready
  • Other SCE transportation electrification programs and pilots underway

Learning Outcomes         

  • Analyze survey tools to better understand the EV opportunity in your service territory
  • Create EV marketing campaigns that attract, inform, and engage
