2021 At A Glance

In 2021, Edison International delivered on our clean energy strategy, expanding our thought leadership, launching a landmark light-duty electric vehicle charging program and proposing additional investments in building electrification for SCE customers, and continuing to support Edison Energy* clients in meeting their sustainability goals.
