 SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA EDISON
 PROVIDES ENERGY-EFFICIENCY CASH INCENTIVES
 ROSEMEAD, Calif., Sept. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Southern California Edison residential customers can receive up to $500 in cash rebates for investing in energy-efficient heating and cooling equipment.
 "In these days when everyone is asked to do more with less, we can help our customers save energy and money, and conserve natural resources, without sacrificing comfort or convenience," said Ken Gudger, vice president of SCE's Energy Efficiency and Market Services. "Everyone benefits when customers take advantage of our energy-efficiency programs. The resulting efficiency improvements help keep rates low for everyone."
 To participate in the rebate program, Edison customers must first contact SCE's Action Line at 800-952-5062 to make a rebate reservation. Customers will receive a free booklet describing the program details, a rebate reservation letter and an application. Rebate reservations must be made by Dec. 31, for equipment purchased and installed in 1992.
 Equipment that qualifies for rebates includes:
 Heat Pump Water Heaters -- Replace or retrofit an existing domestic electric or heat pump water heater with a new energy- efficient heat pump water heater. Rebate: $500.
 Central Electric Heat Pump -- Replace existing heat pump or electric heat with a central heat pump that has a SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating) of 11.0 or higher. Rebates: $400 for SEER rating 11.0-11.9, $500 for SEER rating of 12.0 and above.
 Central Electric Air Conditioner -- Replace existing central electric air conditioner with one that has a SEER rating of 11.0 or higher. Rebates: $200 for SEER of 11.0-11.9, $300 for SEER of 12.0 or higher.
 Through-the-Wall Heat Pump -- Replace permanently installed existing electric heat with a through-the-wall heat pump that has an EER (Energy Efficiency Rating) of 8.7 or higher. Rebate: $150 (Maximum two rebates per dwelling.)

 Evaporative Cooler -- Desert-area residential customers can receive a rebate for installing a new evaporative cooler. Rebate: $100. Rebate effective starting June 1.
