If your household is at risk of losing electricity due to a disconnect notice or is already disconnected, you may qualify for assistance.
- Eligibility: Assistance availability depends on program rules, eligibility criteria, and the availability of flexible funds. You may qualify if your gross income for the last 30 days is below the 200% guideline for your household size
- Payment Arrangements: After assistance has been determined, you'll need to set up a payment arrangement with your power company.
- Energy Assistance Program: SEVCA can also assist you in applying for the Energy Assistance Program, which offers a 25% discount on power usage. First-time applicants may even be eligible for forgiveness of past-due payments.
