At Pepco, we believe everyone should have access to safe, reliable, and affordable energy. That’s why we’re going the extra mile to support low- and moderate-income customers.
When our parent company, Pepco Holdings, merged with Exelon last year, we committed to expand our assistance to low- and moderate-income customers. This includes a total of $7.5 million to be directed at supporting Maryland residential customers in the Pepco and Delmarva Power regions.
As part of our promise, Pepco is providing $737,000 in additional benefits and programs to help its Maryland consumers in need. Among these benefits is our collaboration with the Washington Area Fuel Fund (WAFF) – a longtime partnership between Washington Gas and The Salvation Army National Capital Area Command – helping customers with emergency utility assistance in Prince George’s and Montgomery counties.
This winter, we will work with WAFF to heat the homes of Pepco Maryland residential customers in financial need. Since 1983, this fund has disbursed more than $24 million to help more than 271,000 residents in need of energy assistance.
“Pepco is pleased to provide additional assistance to some of the most vulnerable residents in the counties that we take great pride in serving,” Donna Cooper, Pepco region president, said. “We recognize that there is a significant need for supplemental funding by organizations whose core existence is to assist others. Our partnership with them will allow more families to be served at a very critical time.”
We are dedicated to bringing all of our customers best-in-class service, and we look forward to expanding our work with our community partners to continue to bring Maryland residents safe, reliable and affordable energy.
