SCE began installing smart meters in 2009, and followed that by introducing smart-meter enabled programs and services in 2010. Today, close to 5 million customers now have access to a suite of new tools enabled by the Edison SmartConnect program and customers are adopting these services in record numbers. By providing customers with the tools needed to reduce their electricity usage, SCE is targeting a reduction in peak load of 1,000 Megawatts and reduced GHG (greenhouse gases) of 365,000 tons per year, which equates to removing about 79,000 vehicles from the road.
