SCE Launches Charge Ready Electric Vehicle Charging Pilot Program - Hundreds of stations to be added for area workers, customers, residents and students

ROSEMEAD, Calif., May 16, 2016 — Southern California Edison’s Charge Ready program will bring representatives of local businesses and other organizations together on Wednesday in Irwindale to learn how they can take part in the pilot program that will add as many as 1,500 electric vehicle charging stations to SCE’s service area.

The $22-million Charge Ready pilot aims to get more electric vehicle charging stations installed at locations where cars are parked for extended periods — for example, at workplaces, apartment and condo complexes, fleet vehicle parking lots, campuses and recreational areas.

“We are excited to partner with employers, landlords, universities and other organizations to make it more convenient to charge electric vehicles in Southern California,” said Caroline Choi, SCE’s vice president for Energy and Environmental Policy. Under the Charge Ready program, participants, or site hosts, will own, operate and maintain electric vehicle charging stations, and SCE will install and maintain the supporting electrical infrastructure at no cost to participants.

As an additional incentive to participate, SCE will offer rebates to offset some or all of the cost of the charging stations and their installation, depending on the location and type of establishment. The program also calls for at least 10 percent of the charging stations to be installed in disadvantaged communities.

“What separates Charge Ready from other electric vehicle charging programs is that it encourages broad market participation, customer choice and technology innovation,” Choi said. “Participants will have the ability to select equipment suppliers and charging services based on their site’s needs.”

Charge Ready will also help support state environmental improvement goals and make better use of the power grid, she said. Additionally, the program provides funding for education and outreach to develop awareness about the benefits of driving electric vehicles and charging from the power grid.

At the pilot’s conclusion, SCE plans to seek authority from the California Public Utilities Commission to expand the program to about 30,000 charging stations.

The event will be held at 1:30 p.m. on Wednesday at SCE’s Energy Education Center, 6090 North Irwindale Ave., Irwindale. Parking is available in the center’s lot, which has eight EV chargers available for public use.

Uh Oh By Lou Coleman

What I’m going to say today is going to tick some of you off. The more churched you are, probably the bigger problem you’re going to have with this message. Many of you will probably ask when you are done reading it, if you decide to finish it; just who does she think she is? The answer to your question: “Tell them that I AM sent you, and then tell them why!”… …There are many who teach and many who believe that if you have said, “The Sinner’s Prayer” that you’re, “Goin’ Up Yonder to be with your Lord.”... That you’re going to Heaven… That your ticket has been purchased… Well, in {Matt. 7:21-23} Jesus makes one of the most startling statements in the entire Bible. ..He says that not everyone who claims Him as Lord will be saved… He is telling us that there will be some people who will think they are saved, but who, in fact, are still lost and headed to Hell. Many religious people, including some believers in Jesus, will learn that they too will be lost. Jesus makes it clear that not all who profess Him possess Him. A mere profession of Jesus as Savior is not enough to save! A person may believe in the doctrines of the faith. They may be sincere and good. However, merely saying you know Jesus is not enough to save your soul. Belonging to the church, being a good person, doing religious things, etc., are all good, but none of them can save the soul. That’s tough, but we need to be honest. “Everybody Talkin’ Bout Heaven Ain’t Going There!” {Matthew: 7:13-14}. You know as Jesus drew near to the end of the Sermon on the Mount, He takes the time to remind men of the seriousness of their salvation. He wanted all who heard Him to be sure that they were genuinely converted. I want you to know that is only my desire for each of us. Sadly, however, many will suffer in eternal condemnation because they refuse to believe the Lord’s teaching about who will be saved and go to heaven. Jesus tells us that entering heaven will not be easy. This is a surprise to most people, because they have been taught that the way to heaven is easy. They’ve been taught, “All you have to do to be saved is believe in Jesus.” I tell you, there is a great difference between what men teach today and what Jesus taught then. Jesus tells us that there are not many people going in through this strait gate and narrow way. He says, “Few there be that find it.” This too, is a surprise to many folks, because they believe that most people will be saved because most people believe in God. While it may not agree with what most have been taught and believe… it is clear and easy to understand. Jesus says we must DO the Will of God. We must not just believe in God, but we must also believe God! We must believe God enough to Do His Will. Here, Jesus clears up the matter of what brings salvation to a life. He says that people are saved by “Doing the will of His Father.” That is the problem with the teaching of many who are false prophets and teachers today. They are telling people that all one must do is believe in Jesus in order to be saved. They say we are saved by “faith only.” This is a false teaching. God has never said it, but men teach it. In fact, we have seen that Jesus has said just the opposite. I tell you we can tiptoe and dance all around the truth until our feet are sore and calloused, but it will not change the truth, it will not open the doors to heaven one millimeter , and no one more person will enter in… Heaven is prepared for those... who are prepared. Here is the dividing line: Those who DO the Father’s Will! {James 1:22-25}. Only those who come on God’s terms will enter Heaven… What is God’s terms…. God’s terms for entering Heaven are confession, repentance, and a genuine trust and commitment in Jesus alone. Many people want to go to heaven but are unwilling to do these things…They want to do either one or the other. Many people think they are going to heaven, but they have not admitted they are sinners, they have not turned from an ungodly life, and they have not genuinely trusted in Jesus alone for salvation and really put Him first in their lives. There are millions of people who claim to believe in Jesus, who use His name, who call Him “Lord,” expecting heaven but will only receive hell. The fact is clearly stated by Jesus who said many will say, “Lord, Lord,” who will not enter the kingdom. It’s a strange thing but it is something that has to be emphasized. If there is the slightest doubt in your heart that you aren’t genuinely converted, you need to repent of your repentance. I tell you “Everybody Talking’ Bout Heaven Ain’t Goin’ There!” …Who report are you going to believe? Man or Jesus? Listen, our obedience to Christ is a very serious decision and must not be taken lightly. It must be on the Lord’s terms as laid out in the Scriptures and not on our terms. We have already seen in {Matthew 7:13-14, 21}, only a few will be saved, and many will be lost, and only those who DO the will of the Father will go to heaven. There is no other way. No single condition, that God imposes, can be ignored. God has no non-essential commands. The only source of information on what God has truly said can only come from the Bible. We must seek God’s answer on the matter in “what saith the Lord.” It’s not shocking for Jesus first words to His disciples in the book of Matthew to be, “Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.” In the days that followed, he taught them that He “came to seek and to save what was lost,” and He told them that just as the Father had sent Him into the world, He would send them into the world. Subsequently, we are not surprised when the last words of Jesus to His disciples are, “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations.” This is God’s will in the world: to create, call, save and bless His people for the spread of His grace and glory among all peoples. This will is not intended to be found; it is intended to be followed. We don’t have to wonder about God’s will when we’ve been created to walk in it. We have no need to ask God to reveal His will for our lives; instead, we need to ask God to align our lives with the will He has already revealed. God’s will for us as disciples of Jesus is to make disciples of Jesus in all nations…The problem of confusion on this matter is because men, preachers, and denominations have appealed to human logic and reasoning instead of simply consulting God on the matter. Prove it to yourself. Read what Jesus says…. {Matt.7:13-15; 22:14; 13:24-30; 13:36-43; 22:14}… {Mark 3:34-35} … {1Tim 2:1-4}… {1Thes 5:16-19}… {John 7:17 – 8:30-32}… {Roman 8:27; 12:2}… {2Corin 8:16 -13:5}… {1Pet 2:13-16 - 3:17 – 4:19}… {2Peter 1:10}… {Rom 6:17-18}… {James 1:22-25}… {1John 2:16-17}… {Ephesians 2:8-9}…. because “Everybody Talking’ Bout Heaven Ain’t Goin’ There… Uh-Oh!”

SCE Reminds Customers to Conserve Electricity During Extended Heat Wave - Round-the-clock use of electricity puts strain on electrical grid

ROSEMEAD, Calif., May 14, 2014 — With a week-long heat wave peaking between today and Friday and triple-digit temperatures in many areas, Southern California Edison (SCE) reminds its customers of the importance of energy conservation. The heavy demand could also cause equipment failure, which could lead to outages for some SCE customers.

Presently the system is performing well and the company anticipates having an adequate supply of electricity. However, with some customers using more energy in the evenings this week, especially air conditioning, the added demand can put a strain on SCE's equipment. Without the opportunity for SCE's equipment to cool off, transformers and other equipment could fail.

SCE personnel, which include restoration and repair crews, are responding to outages as they are reported.

The company is also taking steps to ensure that crews are available to immediately respond to outages.

SCE has postponed a number of scheduled maintenance outages, but will continue to conduct some that are critical. Conducting these critical maintenance outages helps lessen the possibility of equipment failure, which could lead to repair outages lasting longer and affecting more customers than maintenance outages.

The company offers many programs to help people conserve electricity. SCE’s Summer Discount Plan allows customers to receive bill credits of up to $200 by allowing their central air conditioner to be temporarily turned off or cycled during peak times of the day. The program offers a variety of plans and options, and is completely customizable.

Here are some other important conservation tips to keep in mind during this heat wave:

• Set thermostats no lower than 78 degrees and use electric fans instead of air conditioning when practical.

• Turn off unused appliances and equipment and shut off lights when leaving a room.

• Close drapes and blinds to keep out direct sunlight during hot periods.

• Operate swimming-pool equipment and energy-intensive appliances, such as dishwashers, washing machines and dryers, during early morning and evening hours.

• Limit the opening and reopening of refrigerators, which are major users of electricity in most homes.

Safety Tips:

• Keep outdoor activities to a minimum, and drink a lot of water during the hottest parts of the day.

• During a power outage, turn off and unplug any unnecessary electrical equipment, including sensitive electronics.

• Open the refrigerator and freezer only when necessary to keep the food cold.

• Use flashlights for lighting during a power outage; do not use candles because they pose a significant fire hazard.

• Never attempt to move or go near a downed power line. Call 911 to report the situation.

• Watch for traffic signals that may be out. Approach those intersections as four-way stops.

Customers may report outages at 1-800-611-1911, online or through the SCE Outages App. SCE will provide the latest information about outages at its website and Twitter.

SCE’s Energy Walk Provides Moreno Valley Small Business Owners Cost Effective Energy Conservation Tips

SCE’s Energy Efficiency Outreach Team Account Manager Maria Cecilla Serret (R) shares energy conservation tips with Photos Onsight Studio Owner Theron Laudermill (L), at his company’s new location in the Moreno Valley Mall

ROSEMEAD, Calif., August 8, 2013 — In efforts to raise awareness of more ways to save energy and money, Southern California Edison (SCE) conducted an Energy Walk for small businesses in the Moreno Valley area. Covering more than 200 Moreno Valley businesses, SCE representatives spoke to smallbusiness owners on cost effective ways to conserve energy during summer’s peak hours. Photos Onsight Studio, a small business located in the Moreno Valley Mall, photographs everyone from the city’s Mayor to local football teams. Since Theron Laudermill opened Photos Onsight Studio five years ago, he admitted never worrying about high-energy use. Now, moving into a larger mall unit with more than four studio sets each using its own lighting system, Photos Onsight Studio can certainly expect to use more energy. SCE’s Energy Efficiency Outreach Team Account Manager Maria Cecilla Serret spoke with Laudermill, General Manager Pamela Laudermill and maintenance worker Walter Peña, providing them with vital tips on conserving energy at this new location. From frequent maintenance on its shared HVAC system to upgrading old appliances, Photo OnSight Studio can incorporate numerous tips offered by SCE. “I will definitely take advantage of the energy conservation tips Edison has shared with me,” said Laudermill. “I’m happy they came out, and I will also apply these tips to my home life.” SCE has hosted seven Energy Walks, reaching more than 2,000 small businesses in the Inland Empire.
