Utility Assistance Program Gets a Boost

If you or someone you know is struggling financially, PWP is here to help. Benefits for the Electric Utility Assistance Program (EUAP), Cares and Cares Plus were recently increased to help low-income customers. Qualifying customers now receive a $7.50 credit per month – up from $5 – on their electric bill.

Created in 2006 and funded by the Public Benefits Charge on electric bills, the programs are open to customers whose maximum income for a single-person household is $27,750, increasing in increments of $4,000 for each additional person. Participants in the Pasadena Medical Assistance Program for people with energy-hungry medical equipment receive the same $7.50 monthly benefit regardless of income level.
