During the summer months, Southern California Edison’s Cool Center Program provides safe, air-conditioned facilities where you can relax from the heat and avoid running your own cooling devices at home.

In addition to saving on your personal electric bill, Cool Centers offer great benefits:

• Help minimize the harmful impact against our environment by using less energy
• Reduce health hazards by avoiding extremely hot and uncomfortable temperatures
• Learn more about energy-efficiency practices and programs so you can keep saving

Cool Centers provide refreshments and snacks, as well as transportation. Feel free to bring reading material from home or participate in on-site activities, such as crafts, games and movies.
*This program is paid for by California utility ratepayers and administered by Southern California Edison under the auspices of the California Public Utilities Commission. Program is subject to change without notice
