ROSEMEAD, Calif. -- November 08, 2012

Southern California Edison (SCE), its customers and SCE’s parent company,
Edison International, are helping Superstorm Sandy victims with three powerful
philanthropy initiatives with funds from shareholders, not SCE customers:

  *Customers can help raise money without spending a dime. Through SCE’s
    “Every Click Counts” campaign, the company will donate $1 for every new
    “like” on SCE’s Facebook page (www.facebook.com/SCE) and for each new
    follower on SCE’s main Twitter feed (www.twitter.com/SCE). The goal is to
    donate up to $20,000 to American Red Cross relief efforts.
  *Edison International has set up a special program that will match
    donations from employees to the American Red Cross up to $25,000. This is
    a way to enhance the $1.5 million commitment that Edison International
    made to the Red Cross in 2012.
  *Five SCE employees trained by the Red Cross flew to New York on Friday.
    For the next week, they will help to provide temporary shelter and meals
    to displaced families. Members of the team range in age from 35 to 55 and
    come from the communities of Cerritos, Paramount, Pico Rivera, Rosemead
    and Santa Clarita. Their professional backgrounds include information
    technology, environmental safety and communications.

Last week, SCE sent 126 line workers and support crews to New York and New
Jersey to help repair Sandy’s devastation that left millions of Consolidated
Edison customers without power.

“We are proud of our employees’ and customers’ eagerness to help,” said Janet
Clayton, Edison International senior vice president, Corporate Communications,
and chair of Edison International's Corporate Philanthropy Committee. “We
can’t all do the hard work of climbing poles and stringing wires, but everyone
can take a few moments to let the people on the East Coast know that we’re
thinking of them, and to help in a meaningful way.”
