Thank You Energy Share Donors! 07/27/2020

With the help of generous customers and community partners, EWEB's Energy Share program helps customers who are struggling to pay their utility bills and who may be at risk of disconnection of services.

We would like to send a super shout-out to our latest donor, River Road Water District for their generous contribution of $4,311.

The River Road Water District (RRWD) contracts with EWEB to provide water service to the unincorporated areas of the River Road area south of the Beltline. RRWD purchases water from EWEB and sells it to customers in their jurisdiction, while EWEB provides billing and water system maintenance duties for the district. Recently the RRWD board voted to make a contribution to Energy Share based on the estimated support District water customers receive through EWEB's bill assistance programs.

EWEB offers $260 in bill assistance annually to income-qualifying customers, and in response to the COVID-19, the program was expanded to cover customers who experience job loss as a result of the pandemic. Customer donations to Energy Share have greatly expanded the amount of support EWEB is able to provide in this time of extreme financial need.

Others are stepping up to help as well.

Last month local business Pasta Plus donated $700 in solar credits from their PV system to EWEB's Energy Share program.

If you have been thinking about ways you can help during the COVID-19 pandemic, a donation to Energy Share will help keep the lights on for families in need. Make a one-time donation or pledge a recurring amount at eweb.org/energyshare.
