Programs and Services
Salem Electric has a long history of supporting energy efficiency. Members can choose between a variety of programs to save energy, reduce their electric bill, and most importantly, put money in their pockets. Members receive rebates and incentives and have their questions answered by our energy experts who help the process run smoothly.

Salem Electric’s Energy Assistance Program is available to qualifying members whose household income does not exceed income guidelines and whose main heating source is electricity. Priority is given to seniors (age 60+) and persons with disabilities (those receiving or having applied for monetary benefits for their disability). Seniors and persons with disabilities may begin applying for assistance in December. All others who meet income guidelines may apply beginning in January. Assistance is limited to one payment per household each heating season. A separate assistance program funded through member donations is available year-round for all qualifying members.
