SCE Pre-Owned EV Rebate FAQs


What is the SCE Pre-Owned EV Rebate?

The SCE Pre-Owned EV Rebate is available to SCE residential customers who have purchased or leased an eligible pre-owned (used) plug-in electric vehicle. To be eligible, an application must be submitted within 180 days of the date the vehicle was purchase or leased. Recipients of the SCE Clean Fuel Reward Program rebate are not eligible to also receive the SCE Pre-Owned EV Rebate for the same vehicle.

The SCE Pre-Owned EV Rebate program is funded by the State of California’s Low Carbon Fuel Standard (LCFS) program. The LCFS program encourages utility customers to reduce transportation-related greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by encouraging them to adopt cleaner fuels, like electricity.


Why is electricity powering EV considered to be clean fuel?

The state of California has set strong targets for the amount of renewable and low-carbon electricity that is used to power the electrical grid. Combined with the higher efficiencies of electric motors, using electricity as a transportation fuel generates far fewer greenhouse gas emissions for the same mileage than gasoline or diesel. Additionally, it may be lower cost, as fueling with electricity can be equivalent to approximately $1 per gallon of gasoline when you charge during off-peak hours on one of SCE’s EV rates.


What are the benefits of using electricity to fuel my vehicle?

Driving an EV helps you reduce your carbon footprint by reducing your exhaust emissions. In fact, EVs cut carbon emissions by up to 70%, and they are expected to continue to get even cleaner. EVs dramatically lower smog and greenhouse gas emissions—even factoring in the emissions from production, distribution, and the generation of electricity.


How many times can I receive the SCE Pre-Owned EV Rebate?

Each current SCE customer may receive only one Pre-Owned EV Rebate per eligible vehicle. An otherwise eligible EV is not eligible for the SCE Pre-Owned EV Rebate if (1) you or the registered co-owner or co-lessee of your vehicle received an SCE Clean Fuel Reward Program rebate for the same vehicle; or (2) an eligible vehicle has already received three rebates, pursuant to any EV rebate program for new or pre-owned cars provided by SCE, by previous owners.


Can I receive both the SCE Clean Fuel Reward Program (CFRP) rebate and the SCE Pre-Owned EV Rebate for the same vehicle?

No. If any registered owner or lessee of the vehicle received a rebate from the SCE Clean Fuel Reward Program, neither owner is eligible to receive the SCE Pre-Owned EV Rebate for that specific vehicle.


Who can apply for the SCE Pre-Owned EV Rebate?

You may apply for the rebate if:

  • You are a customer of Southern California Edison (SCE) with an active residential electricity account in SCE’s service territory. Note: Vehicles must be registered to individuals. Vehicles registered to businesses are not eligible.
  • You own or lease an eligible Battery Electric Vehicle (BEV) or Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) listed on the HOV Eligibility List. Fuel cell vehicles, electric bikes, electric motorcycles, electric scooters and neighborhood vehicles are not eligible for the rebate, even if they are included on the HOV Eligibility List.
  • Your complete application is successfully submitted within 180 days of the date of EV purchase or lease. The date of purchase shall be considered the contract date on the purchase/lease contract or the Transfer Date on the new owner’s Certificate of Title for private-party sales. If the transfer date is missing from the Certificate of Title, additional documentation may be required to confirm your purchase date.
  • The vehicle, identified by its unique Vehicle Identification Number (VIN), is registered at the same residential address as the address on your SCE electric service account. Note: your vehicle must be registered to the address associated with the SCE Service Account Number provided in your application. The SCE Service Account does not need to be in your name.
  • You have paid the current vehicle registration fees in the State of California and are able to submit a digital copy of your permanent vehicle registration and purchase or lease contract. Please refer to the Sample Supporting Documents for examples of accepted documents.
  • The full name you enter on the application must exactly match the full name on the vehicle's permanent registration.
  • You submit an executed and signed vehicle purchase/lease agreement if purchased from a dealership. If purchased from a private-party sale, you must submit your new Certificate of Title listing the new owner. You will submit these documents within 60 days after you submit your application.
  • You agree to maintain possession of the vehicle in California for a minimum of 20 consecutive months from the vehicle purchase or lease date. Your lease term must be at least 20 months to be eligible for the rebate.
  • SCE has not already paid three rebates for your eligible Battery Electric Vehicle (BEV) or Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) during its lifetime. This includes any rebates paid pursuant to the SCE Clean Fuel Reward or the SCE Pre-Owned EV Rebate programs. Each household may receive only one rebate per eligible vehicle, as identified by its VIN, but if you transfer ownership, the new owner (or lessee, if applicable) may also qualify for a Pre-Owned EV Rebate, subject to the terms and conditions of the program.
  • The household associated with your SCE service account has not received three SCE rebates for electric vehicles in the current calendar year. Rebates pursuant to both the SCE Clean Fuel Reward Program and SCE Pre-Owned EV Rebate count toward this maximum. If you have multiple eligible EVs in your household, you may apply to receive a separate rebate for up to three electric vehicles per calendar year, as long as you meet all of the other program requirements.


What is considered my date of purchase/lease?

The date of purchase or lease, as applicable, will be the contract date on the purchase or lease contract from the dealer, or the Transfer Date on the new owner’s Certificate of Title for private-party sales. If the transfer date is missing from the Certificate of Title, additional documentation may be required to confirm your purchase date.


When can I apply?

You may apply after you purchase or lease your eligible vehicle. You must submit your SCE Pre-Owned Rebate application within 180 days after the date of purchase or lease, as applicable.


Can I apply on behalf of a member of my household, or a tenant, who purchased or leased a pre-owned EV?

No – the applicant’s name must appear on the vehicle registration card. However, the applicant’s name does not need to be on the SCE utility bill, as long as the address on the vehicle registration matches the address associated with the SCE Service Account. If more than one person owns or leases the vehicle, only one co-owner or co-lessee should apply.


Where do I find my Service Account number?

You can find your Service Account number on the first page of your paper bill. It is typically located at the upper left corner directly above your service address or in the “Summary of your billing detail” section on page 1 or 2 of your bill. Your Service Account number always begins with the number “8” followed with nine digits in this format: 8XXXXXXXXX.

If you have opted for paperless bill, you can find your Service Account number on your SCE online account site MyAccount. After logging onto MyAccount through www.sce.com/myaccount, click on Billing & Payments in the left navigation panel and click on View Bill to see your bill in PDF.

If you have opted for a bank bill pay option, you will not have the ability to view your bill online in a PDF. However, you can still find your Service Account number on MyAccount. After logging onto MyAccount through www.sce.com, click on My Account on the top menu bar and then click Services in the left navigation panel, your Service Account number is under the Service Account Information section.

You can differentiate your Service Account number from your Customer Account number because your Service Account number always begins with the number “8” followed with nine digits in this format: 8XXXXXXXXX. Your Customer Account number always begins with the number “7” followed with nine digits in a different format: 7XXXXXXXXX.


What documents do I need to submit?

After submitting your application form online, you will be asked to upload a scanned copy or an image of your permanent vehicle registration and your purchase or lease agreement. If your vehicle was purchased from a private seller, you must submit a copy of your Certificate of Title (pink slip) in place of an agreement. Please refer to the Sample Supporting Documents PDF for examples of accepted documnetation.


What document do I submit as a purchase agreement if I purchased my vehicle from a private seller?

If your vehicle was purchased from an individual in a private-party sale, you must submit a copy of your Certificate of Title (pink slip) in place of an agreement.

If the vehicle was purchased from an individual in a private-party sale, but a lienholder (bank or credit union) holds the Certificate of Title, you must submit an Electronic Lien and Title document and your signed loan agreement from your bank or credit union.

What electricity rate plan is best for an EV driver?

Your home, household size, schedule and lifestyle all play a part in determining your electricity needs. If you have an EV or other clean energy technology such as a residential battery or electric heat pump (water or space heating), the TOU-D-Prime rate may be the best fit for you. The TOU-D-Prime rate offers our lowest off-peak rates and is designed exclusively for high-energy use households with an EV or other clean energy technology. Go online to decide what rate plan works best for you and sign up at Residential Rate Plans.

If you are a CCA customer, please contact your CCA to learn which rate plan may be best for you.


What is the new TOU-D Prime rate?

SCE's new TOU-D Prime rate is a Time-of-Use (TOU) rate plan that may help you save based on the time of day you charge your EV. TOU-D Prime can help you keep costs down, if you charge your EV and avoid charging between 4 p.m. and 9 p.m. For Details, visit Residential Rate Plans.


Who is eligible for TOU-D Prime, and how can I sign up?

You're eligible for TOU-D Prime if you own or lease one or more of the following technologies and charge it at home:

  • Battery Electric Vehicle (BEV) or Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) An energy storage system at home
  • An electric heat pump for water or space heater

You must be able to confirm you own or lease one or more of these technologies to qualify.

To find out if TOU-D Prime is a good fit for your household, visit Residential Rate Plans or call 1-800-655-4555.


Are there other rebates or incentives available to electric vehicle owners?

You can stay up-to-date on current SCE resources or incentives for electric vehicle owners at https://www.sce.com/residential/electric-vehicles.

Additional incentives for EV owners in California by Zip Code may be found at DriveClean, Electric for All, and PlugStar. Each program has different eligibility requirements, so we encourage customers to confirm eligibility prior to purchasing a pre-owned vehicle.


What are the SCE Pre-Owned EV Rebate Terms and Conditions?

  1. To be eligible for the SCE Pre-Owned EV Rebate (Rebate), the applicant (“Applicant” or “you”) must:
    1. Be a customer of Southern California Edison (SCE) with an active residential electric service account.
      1. Applications with a vehicle registered at an address that has a commercial account for their SCE service are not eligible.
      2. Community Choice Aggregation (CCA) and Direct Access (DA) customers are eligible for the rebate.
      3. The name on the SCE service account does not need to match the Applicant’s name.
    2. Own or lease a qualified pre-owned (used) Battery Electric Vehicle (BEV) or Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) (both BEV and PHEV referred to herein as EV) listed on the California Air Resources Board’s HOV Eligibility List. Fuel cell vehicles, electric bikes, electric motorcycles, electric scooters and neighborhood vehicles are not eligible for the Rebate, even if they are included on the HOV Eligibility List. A vehicle may be considered pre-owned if it meets either of the following criteria:
      1. The vehicle had greater than 7,500 miles on the odometer at the time of purchase
      2. The purchase or lease contract indicates that the vehicle is “Used”
      3. If neither of the above criteria are met, SCE may consider providing a Rebate, at its sole discretion, if the Applicant can provide other evidence demonstrating that the vehicle has been previously owned.
    3. Register the vehicle at the same service address corresponding to your household’s residential SCE account. The address on the application must match the address listed on the vehicle registration card and the address associated with the residential service account number provided. Note: If the vehicle registration card lists a past address, change-of-address documentation is not accepted in place of an updated registration card.
    4. Have paid the current vehicle registration fees in the State of California. Note: Paid registration for a Planned Non-Operational (PNO) vehicle is not acceptable to meet the “proof of current vehicle registration” requirement.
    5. Successfully submit an SCE Pre-Owned EV Rebate application after purchase or lease of the EV, but within 180 days following vehicle purchase or lease date (note: you may not submit a Rebate application prior to purchase or lease and possession of a qualified EV). The date of purchase or lease shall be considered the date listed on the purchase or lease contract or the Transfer Date on the new owner’s Certificate of Title for private-party sales.
      1. The Applicant must upload all required documentation within 60 days after submitting the application.

  2. The Applicant agrees to lease or own the vehicle with a current California registration for a minimum of 20 consecutive months after the vehicle purchase or lease date. Lease terms of at least 20 months are required for program eligibility. If the lease agreement submitted does not have a minimum lease term, the vehicle is not eligible for the SCE Pre-Owned EV Rebate unless the Applicant can provide other proof, acceptable to SCE, that it will own or lease the vehicle for at least 20 months. If you do not retain ownership or lease of the qualifying EV for 20 months, you agree to return to SCE a pro rata share of the Rebate amount.

  3. If you have multiple eligible EVs in your household (i.e., all occupants using the same SCE residential service account), your household may receive up to three (3) Rebates per calendar year, one for each qualifying pre-owned EV. Note: On a case-by-case basis, and in SCE’s sole discretion, SCE may waive this limitation upon request (i.e., where a multi-unit dwelling shares a service account).

  4. Up to three owners and/or lessees, as applicable, of a single qualified EV, identified by its unique Vehicle Identification Number (VIN), may receive an SCE new or pre-owned EV Rebate over the lifetime of the EV. An “SCE new or used EV Rebate” is defined as a Rebate provided only pursuant to SCE’s Clean Fuel Reward Program (no longer active) or this SCE’s Pre-Owned EV Rebate Program, but does not include rebates provided pursuant to the California Clean Fuel Reward Program or other EV rebate programs.

  5. Owner(s) or lessee(s) at the same residential address may only receive one SCE new or pre-owned (used) Rebate for the same qualified vehicle registered at that same address, as evidenced by the vehicle registration card. Applicant agrees not to apply, or to cause anyone else in his or her household to apply, for more than one SCE new or used EV rebate for the same EV, even if there is a transfer of ownership within the same household.

  6. A Rebate may only be issued to a registered owner or lessee once per EV, as identified by the VIN. If the qualifying EV is co-owned or co-leased, only one co-owner or co-lessee is eligible for a Rebate, and no co-owner(s) or co-lessee(s) of the Applicant, at the time of purchase or lease or thereafter, may apply for a Rebate for the same EV at any time, even if Applicant is removed from the vehicle registration or any owner(s)/lessee(s) move to a new residential address.
    1. For the avoidance of doubt, an Applicant who previously received a rebate for an EV via the SCE Clean Fuel Reward Program is not eligible to receive an additional Rebate for the same vehicle via the SCE Pre-Owned EV Rebate Program.

  7. The current Rebate amount is set forth on the application. Rebate amounts are subject to change at any time. You will be eligible for the Rebate amount posted on the application at the time your application is completed and accepted. Rebate funds are limited and are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Rebate checks must be deposited within 180 days of the date listed on the Rebate check. After 180 days the check will become void, and SCE will not reissue a Rebate check.

  8. Incomplete or incorrect applications will not be processed. Applications must include all required information, including acceptable proof of vehicle purchase/lease, permanent and valid vehicle registration, and proof that the EV is pre-owned.
    1. The name and address on the application must be an exact match to at least one name shown on the vehicle registration card. However, if the customer name entered on the application is not an exact match, SCE may, in its sole discretion if it determines that the names are substantially similar, edit the applicant’s name to match that on the vehicle registration card (e.g., “Matt” becomes “Matthew”).
    2. If the customer name entered on the application is not the same name as at least one registered owner of the vehicle on the registration card, the application will be rejected. A registered owner may submit a new application in their own name, if eligible.
    3. Vehicles registered to a Trust are eligible to apply in the name of the Trust as it is written on the registration card, or in the name of the confirmed trustee.
    4. For private-party sales, if the transfer date is missing from the Certificate of Title, additional documentation may be required to confirm your purchase date.

  9. The Rebate and the terms and conditions of the SCE Pre-Owned EV Rebate Program (Program) are subject to change, and the Program can be terminated at any time by SCE and/or the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC). Any information provided in the Rebate application may be used internally by SCE for purposes other than processing the application and may be made available to the CPUC and the California Air Resources Board.

  10. You authorize SCE to send you email messages to the email address you have provided related to the Rebate and the Program, including but not limited to, information about plug-in electric vehicles, electric vehicle rate plans, information about charging or charging programs, and surveys regarding your electric vehicle experience. You: (i) acknowledge that you are the authorized user of the email address provided in the application; (ii) grant SCE express permission to send emails related to your application to that email address until such permission is expressly revoked by you; and (iii) notwithstanding that this email address may be on the federal or a state's Do Not Contact list, acknowledge that such emails sent by SCE shall not be in violation of any Do Not Contact list(s).

  11. You certify that the information provided in your application is true and correct, and you understand that if any of the information provided is discovered to be false, you agree to pay back any Rebate paid to you by SCE, and you understand that you may be subject to other penalties, as permitted by law. SCE may request additional documentation from you to confirm the accuracy of the information you provide and your eligibility for the Rebate.

  12. The Rebate payment shall go directly to the Applicant listed on the application. Payment cannot be assigned or transferred. Applicant is responsible for paying all tax liability imposed as a result of receiving the Rebate. Applicant should consult a tax advisor concerning the taxability of the Rebate, and SCE is not responsible for any taxes imposed on Applicant as a result of receipt of the Rebate.

  13. SCE makes no representations, expressed or implied, regarding the design, construction, reliability, efficiency, performance, operation, maintenance, or use of any vehicle, discussed, selected, rejected, purchased/ leased or otherwise considered by customer. Any decisions regarding the selection, design, purchase/lease, use and operation of any vehicle shall be at the sole discretion and are the sole responsibility of the customer. SCE does not guarantee energy or bill savings as a result of this Rebate.

  14. Release and Indemnification: Applicant agrees to release and hold harmless SCE, its officers, directors, shareholders, employees and contractors from and against any and all causes of action, damages, losses, claims, expenses, demands, costs (including attorneys’ fees and expenses and all court, arbitration or other dispute resolution costs), or any of them, resulting from, arising out of, or in any way directly connected with this Program, Applicant’s receipt of the Rebate, failure to receive the Rebate, any taxes associated therewith, or Applicant’s vehicle registration or registration status. SCE makes no representations or warranties regarding whether Applicant will or will not qualify to receive the Rebate.
  15. SCE Clean Fuel Reward Program FAQs


    What is the SCE Clean Fuel Reward Program and when did it end?

    The SCE Clean Fuel Reward Program was available to SCE residential customers who owned or leased eligible plug-in electric vehicles before 2021. The last day to apply for the SCE Clean Fuel Reward Program was December 31st, 2020 at 11:59pm PST. Any applications submitted after this time are not eligible. Recipients of the California Clean Fuel Reward point-of-sale rebate are not eligible to also receive the SCE Clean Fuel Reward Program post-purchase rebate for the same vehicle.

    For more details about the SCE Clean Fuel Reward Program, please see these Terms and Conditions.


    I have an active application for the SCE Clean Fuel Reward Program, but I have not yet received my rebate check. What happens now that the program has ended on December 31st, 2020?

    All applications successfully submitted by December 31st, 2020 at 11:59pm PST will stay active so long as all required documents are submitted within the provided timeframes. We highly suggest you verify that your application submitted successfully by confirming that you received a confirmation email containing your application number (S-XXXXXX) to your application email address. The Clean Fuel Reward Program team will continue to review rebate applications submitted in 2020 and be available for any questions through 2021.


    Could I have received both the SCE Clean Fuel Reward Program (CFRP) rebate and the California Clean Fuel Reward (CCFR) point-of-sale rebate for the same vehicle?

    The original registered owner of a new vehicle that receives the California Clean Fuel Reward rebate at the point-of-sale through the dealership cannot also receive the SCE’s post-purchase Clean Fuel Reward Program rebate for that specific vehicle.


    Who was eligible for the SCE Clean Fuel Reward Program rebate?

    You may be eligible for the SCE Clean Fuel Reward Program if you submitted an application before the program ended and:

    • You are a customer of Southern California Edison (SCE) with an active residential electricity account in SCE’s service territory and you have successfully submitted an application no later than December 31st, 2020 at 11:59pm PST. Note: Vehicles must be registered to individuals. Vehicles registered to businesses are not eligible
    • You own or lease an eligible plug-in vehicle listed on the HOV Eligibility List. Fuel cell vehicles, electric bikes, electric motorcycles, electric scooters and neighborhood vehicles are not eligible for the rebate, despite their inclusion on the HOV Eligibility List.

The California Clean Fuel Reward point-of-sale rebate will count toward the maximum of three rebates per unique VIN. Each household may receive a Clean Fuel Rewards rebate only one time for an EV, but if you transfer ownership, the new owner (or lessee, if applicable) will qualify for a rebate – as long as the new owner or lessee meets the other eligibility requirements and the vehicle has not reached the maximum of three rebates associated with the EV.
    • You have not received the California Clean Fuel Reward (CCFR) point-of-sale rebate for the submitted vehicle. If you have previously received the California Clean Fuel Reward (CCFR) rebate at the point-of-sale, you are not eligible to also receive the Southern California Edison Clean Fuel Reward Program post-purchase rebate.
    • Your household has not already submitted applications for and received three Clean Fuel Reward rebates in the current calendar year (Note: Both the Clean Fuel Reward Program and California Clean Fuel Reward rebates count toward the total of three Clean Fuel Reward rebates).
