In collaboration with United Way of Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey in Atlantic County, and the Atlantic County Sheriff’s Office R.E.A.L. Help Program, we participated in an Economic and Energy Assistance Resource Expo in March, 2015. The free event helped connect hundreds of residents in need of financial assistance with information on energy assistance and social service options available in Atlantic County.
Our representatives and other utility and social service providers were on hand to answer questions, provide information on available energy assistance programs and process assistance applications.
Additionally, in August, 2015, More than 100 representatives of non-profit and government agencies attended our annual Energy Assistance Summit at the company’s headquarters in Mays Landing, NJ. The event provided attendees information on energy assistance programs and resources available for Atlantic City Electric customers, among other pertinent topics.
This event included presentations by representatives of Atlantic City Electric; New Jersey SHARES; Affordable Housing Alliance; Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP); New Jersey Board of Public Utilities (BPU) and the New Jersey Division of Mental Health Services.
Residents can learn more about state energy assistance programs by visiting www.nj211.org or calling 211 - New Jersey’s non-emergency helpline, available 24/7 throughout the state.
