Job Description

ENERGY FOR WHAT’S AHEAD

Are you looking to make a difference in your career? We’re working on smarter grids, cleaner energy and tools to help people manage energy more efficiently.

About Customer & Operational Services:

Southern California Edison’s (SCE’s) Customer Service Organizational Unit (CS) shares the responsibility to safely deliver reliable, affordable electricity to our customers.

Customer Service is dedicated to operational excellence and innovative thinking through our workforce in our call center, field operations, billing and payment center, outage and demand-side management and other service offerings.

To meet California's goal to reduce greenhouse gases (GHG) and air pollution, Southern California Edison recommends a Clean Power and Electrification Pathway that puts more than 7 million electric vehicles and more than 200,000 electric trucks and buses on California's roads and in its freight yards by the year 2030. As innovative as Electric Vehicle manufacturers may be, they alone aren’t able to fully unlock the societal benefits of transportation electrification. SCE is transforming the energy sector with bold ideas to accelerate vehicle electrification. By fueling a variety of vehicles – cars, public transportation, medium- and heavy-duty trucks, and industrial vehicles and equipment – with clean electric power instead of fossil fuels, we can help meet California’s ambitious GHG and clean air goals.
