Understanding Charge Ready

TurnOnGreen can help you navigate the SCE Charge Ready Program and assist you in potentially securing funding for your EV project.

What is SCE Charge Ready?

The Souther California Edison Charge Ready Program helps businesses and property owners prepare their sites with the necessary infrastructure for EV charging. The Charge Ready Program provides financial incentives, and involved technical support from the beginning of an EV charging project, to its first charge. The Charge Ready Program mirrors TurnOnGreen’s ultimate goal to meet the demand for clean energy charging options for where people work, shop, and play.

Eligible sites include apartment buildings, retirement communities, townhomes, condominiums, mobile home parks, university and military housing, timeshares, and public parking with overnight resident access.

Commercial Properties

SCE Charge Ready aims to give commercial properties the support they need to increase property value, attract and retain high value tenants, and remain competitive through EV charging installations.

Infrastructure Types

SCE installs the Utility-Side Infrastructure in all their available EV rebate programs. The Utility-Side Infrastructure includes necessary transformers, service from the transformer to the meter, and the meter itself. You can chose to install the Customer-Side Infrastructure, (panel, conduit, and EV chargers) although SCE offers to install this side in certain programs. If your site is eligible for a Turnkey Installation, SCE can complete the Customer-Side Infrastructure.

Charging Equipment Rebate Amounts

SCE Charge Ready can contribute significantly to the cost of necessary EV infrastructure while also providing a rebate for the cost of EV chargers. Rebates are subject to eligibility requirements. TurnOnGreen EV chargers are listed on the ChargeReady EV Charger list. Rebates are not guaranteed, and site hosts are accruing costs at their own risk.
