Southern California Edison (SCE)

Energy Efficiency Program Senior Advisor [HYBRID]

Duarte, CA

Job Description
Join the Clean Energy Revolution

Southern California Edison (SCE) oversees a portfolio of Energy Efficiency (EE) customer programs, some of which SCE manages with the assistance of 3rd-party implementors. Although design and delivery of EE programs in California has moved mostly to third-party vendors, SCE retains several running legacy programs within the EE portfolio. These programs have multi-million-dollar budgets and incentivize customers across segments (e.g., residential, commercial, industrial) to adopt energy efficient measures (e.g., LED lighting bays, heat pumps) or behaviors to deliver kWh / kW savings.

As the Energy Efficiency Program Senior Advisor, you will be accountable for ensuring these programs deliver on stated goals by leveraging data to direct changes, identify and resolve internal bottlenecks, and guide day to day program operations. SCE's programs include 3rd-party led contracts and SCE-managed programs that are designed to analyze customer behaviors and promote energy efficient adjustments to said behaviors across both residential and non-residential sectors. The Senior Advisor is required to develop a proficient understanding of the programs managed, build strong relationships with 3rd party vendors, and comprehensively review the goals and work of any new, future programs. These programs will involve highly complex data analysis and engineering involvement, and therefore will require an experienced Senior Advisor with high levels of cross-functional collaboration with relevant SCE teams, with an emphasis on managing performance analytics to drive outcomes.
