Southern California Edison (SCE, Rosemead, CA, US) delivered more solar power to its customers in 2016 than any other utility in the United States, according to rankings compiled by the Smart Electric Power Alliance (SEPA).

SCE connected 1,648 MW of solar power generation capacity to the grid last year through new and expanded residential and commercial solar installations as well as through utility power-purchase agreements.

This represents a 31 percent increase over the 1,258 MW SCE connected in 2015, when it also earned the alliance’s top spot for megawatt capacity. SCE has placed among the top-10 utilities every year since the alliance began publishing its solar rankings in 2007.

 

“California’s electricity customers have made it very clear, they want more renewable, clean energy,” comments Kevin Payne, SCE’s CEO.

“SCE is committed to meeting customers’ needs, as well as to meeting the state’s climate and air quality targets, so we continue to innovate and invest in our electric grid to make it all possible.”
