Help Make the Holiday Season Bright by Donating to Energy Assistance Programs and Supporting Those in

Energy assistance programs available to help local families and individuals who face challenging times

MAYS LANDING, N.J. (Nov. 22, 2022) — This holiday season, Atlantic City Electric is encouraging customers to give back locally through its Good Neighbor Energy Fund and Gift of Energy programs. The winter season can be difficult for some as colder temperatures drive energy usage and bills higher, and at the same time we face the real negative impacts of inflation with increasing costs of goods and services. These Atlantic City Electric programs provide meaningful support for South Jersey families and individuals who need support paying their energy bill.

Good Neighbor Energy Fund

Through the Good Neighbor Energy Fund, Atlantic City Electric works with New Jersey SHARES  to provide payment assistance to customers who may be facing hardships. Donated funds are then disbursed to qualified recipients. Atlantic City Electric matches customer donations dollar-for-dollar, up to $20,000 annually. Since 2014, Atlantic City Electric customers have donated more than $230,000 through the fund to help those in need across southern New Jersey.

Customers can contribute to the Good Neighbor Energy Fund directly through their Atlantic City Electric bill by paying exactly $1.00 over their bill amount. The amount a customer contributes must be exactly $1.00 over their billed amount; amounts over $1.00 will not be recognized as a contribution and will result in a credit to the customer's account. Customers can make a $1.00 contribution each time they pay their Atlantic City Electric bill.

Gift of Energy

Through the Gift of Energy program, anyone can make a payment toward an Atlantic City Electric customer's energy bill. The Gift of Energy is an easy way to support someone you care for this year—all from the safety and comfort of your home. All that is needed to successfully make a payment on behalf of someone else is the customer's name and address or phone number associated with the account. The gift will appear on the recipient's future energy bill as a credit. Those interested in giving the Gift of Energy can do so online at or by calling 800-642-3780.

Energy Efficient Products
Atlantic City Electric encourages its customers to explore energy efficient gift ideas through the company's Marketplace. Here, customers can purchase devices that can help use less energy in the home or business as a gift that keeps on giving! Many energy efficient devices, including LED bulbs, programmable thermostats, power strips, even commercial lighting, are available at discounted prices. 

Bill-payment assistance to help customers

As a reminder, customers who are past due on their Atlantic City Electric bill should contact the company as soon as possible. Customers should never wait until they are in crisis to contact Atlantic City Electric—the time is now. Atlantic City Electric will work with every customer to help identify the support necessary to continue energy service.
