Accessing Data through SCE as a Local Government: New Green Button Connect to My Data Processes

News

Looking for the latest on how to access data as a local government served by SCE? Take a look at the below on SCE’s new Green Button processes put in place in February:

Green Button Download My Data

Local governments looking for data on their own municipal energy use can download it directly from SCE using Green Button Download My Data process. Local governments can log into their SCE.com account and download its energy usage information for each account. Depending on the metering capabilities at the facility requested, the energy data provided may be as granular as 15-minute interval data.

Green Button Connect My Data

Local governments looking for data on their own municipal energy use can also request it using the Green Button Connect My Data process. Through the Green Button process, a local government may have a set of accounts’ energy and billing data exported to a pre-qualified third party. Local governments can log into their SCE.com account and authorize a registered third party by clicking on Connect My Data. Depending on the metering capabilities at the facility requested, the energy data provided may be as granular as 15-minute interval data.

The Green Button is a new process initiated by the White House and the Department of Energy to provide a streamlined way for energy customers to access energy data nationally. Vendors interested in becoming third parties can find more information on SCE’s website here. For local governments that have numerous accounts, use of a third party to access those accounts collectively (rather than individually) may be desirable. SCE is currently reviewing how popular energy data programs, such as EEMIS and EnergyCAP, or possibly even local governments themselves, might be able to become qualified as Green Button third parties.

Energy Data Request Program (EDRP)

Local governments looking for community-wide data for community programming or climate action planning should use the Energy Data Request process put into place by CPUC Decision (D.14-05-016) – SCE provides information on this process for local governments in a fact sheet here. To learn more or make a request, visit SCE’s energy data request page.

Local governments can learn more about both processes, or make a request, on SCE’s website here.
