In October 2022, Energy for Palmdale’s Independent Choice (EPIC) will replace Southern California Edison (“SCE”) for the energy generation portion of your electric service. SCE will continue to deliver power to your home or business, maintain the grid and all equipment, provide billing and collection of payments, open and close accounts, and provide customer service and field service (including during power outages). There will be no change to automatic payments, or level rate pay plans. 

If you would like to continue as an SCE customer for energy and do not want to be automatically enrolled with EPIC, you must opt out of the automatic enrollment. You only need to take action if you want to opt out and remain an SCE customer.

If you opt out, you will still be charged for all electricity you used before the transfer of electric service. Accounts will be transferred on the day the electric meter is read and cannot be transferred during the middle of a billing cycle.
