[Previous entry: "FH Garden Tour June 8th"] [Next entry: "Looking For Members "Monument Advisory""]

06/09/2019: "Renew Your Energy Assist Credit"


OPALCO offers monthly bill credits for members from low-income households through the Energy Assist program. Energy Assist gives qualified members a credit of $30-$60/month (depending on household size) and the same amount can be applied to a Rock Island bill for internet services

However, members must renew their Energy Assist participation each year: the bill credit expires every April 30th.

To renew your Energy Assist bill credit, complete the easy application online (www.opalco.com/about-your-account/energy-assistance-program/energy-assist-faq/) and provide documentation of your qualification - which can be MEDICAID, SSDI, SNAP, Free/reduced school lunch, San Juan County Senior/Disabled Tax Exemption, LIHEAP, Project PAL - or other assistance program. If you need help filling out your application, go to your island Family Resource Center or call us at 360-376-3500.

If you know someone who may benefit from Energy Assist, please encourage them to apply.

Funding for Energy Assist comes from a line item on all co-op members’ bills and also from Community Solar production credits that were donated to the program by participating members. It’s the co-op way to share the load and help address the unmet needs of our membership.

Orcas Power & Light Cooperative (OPALCO) is our member-owned cooperative electric utility, serving more than 11,400 members on 20 islands in San Juan County. OPALCO provides electricity that is 97% greenhouse-gas free and is generated predominantly by hydroelectric plants. OPALCO was founded in 1937. Follow OPALCO @OrcasPower on Facebook and Twitter.
