Empowering Our Communities

Atlantic City Electric is powering local communities beyond reliable energy service including through environmental stewardship and resiliency grants for South Jersey municipalities. Our Sustainable Communities Grant Program, which is facilitated by Sustainable Jersey, has provided $310,000 in grants to fund sustainability projects across South Jersey since 2020.

The Elsinboro Township Fire Department was a 2021 Resiliency Grant recipient that used a portion of the grant to purchase a utility terrain vehicle. The UTV allows emergency responders easier access to rural and riverfront community areas. This is just one of the many ways Atlantic City Electric is more than energy – empowering local communities where we live and work.

The 2024 Sustainable Communities Grant application process is open through June 27, 2024. Interested communities can learn more about the program and how to submit a grant request at
