Edison International, Edison Energy’s parent company, joined a growing list of American businesses, universities, state and local leaders in signing an open letter to the international community regarding the Paris accord on climate change. This signifies that Edison International will continue to support progressive climate change policies and greenhouse gas reduction efforts. Our company is part of the transformation of the electric power industry nationwide and is focused on clean energy and electrification.
Across the US, more and more businesses and universities are looking at their energy strategy, and Edison Energy is well positioned to help these organizations save money, reduce risk and meet sustainability goals. Of the cities, states, businesses and universities who have vocalized their support for the Paris accord, many are already Edison Energy and Edison Energy Group clients, such as IKEA, which has onsite solar panels installed by SoCore Energy, and GM, which has almost 6% of its global facilities powered by wind power.
Edison International also has a critical role to play in helping California meet its ambitious goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions 40 percent below 1990 levels by 2030. That’s only 13 years from now, and we must stay focused on safely and reliably integrating renewable and distributed resources, modernizing the grid and using clean electricity to power transportation and other energy uses.
We know that our customers across the country are depending on us. We join California and other states, cities and counties, universities and other businesses in that goal, and that is why we and many others signed the open letter to the international community.
Edison Energy is not the same company as Southern California Edison, the utility, and Edison Energy is not regulated by the California Public Utilities Commission.
