Have you experienced a financial hardship such as a sudden change in income, unexpected medical expense, or the loss of a family member? We may be able to help. Energy assistance is available for Salem Electric members who meet program guidelines. Subject to available program funding.
For more information on these, or other available, assistance programs available to members, please contact our office.
As a community-focused organization, we understand your desire to help your neighbors. For nearly 40 years donations have been collected and provided to thousands of members to assist them with their electric bill. The SE Round Up Program provides the convenient option of rounding up your payment to the nearest dollar.
How it works: The Round Up Program is completely voluntary. If you choose to participate and your bill is $82.15, Salem Electric will round up the balance due on your billing statement to the nearest dollar, or $83.00. The extra 85 cents you include with your payment will be applied to the Round Up Program. Donations are then redistributed to help members in need of financial assistance with a credit to their electric bill.
