The Electric Assistance Program, or EAP, can help income eligible customers pay their electric bills. The EAP provides eligible customers with a discount on their monthly electric bills. The discounts range from 8% to 76%, depending on the customer’s gross household income and household size.

All electric utility customers support the statewide EAP through the system benefits charge portion of their electric bill. The EAP discount helps make bills more affordable and helps customers avoid the risk of having their electric service shut off for non-payment. To be eligible for the program customers must receive an electric bill from a regulated electric utility and have a gross household income that qualifies at the time of application.
