Dominion Energy Helps Families in Crisis; Launches its 2023-24 EnergyShare® Program with the Salvation Army

CLEVELAND, Jan. 25 -- Dominion Energy Ohio announced that local Salvation Army offices are accepting applications for the company’s EnergyShare program. The program helps families who are experiencing financial hardships through unemployment or family crisis. EnergyShare pays energy bills when customers have exhausted all other forms of assistance.

To qualify for a one-time EnergyShare assistance payment, a person must live in the Dominion Energy service area, be a Dominion Energy customer, and must have:

  • A demonstrated need for assistance.
  • Exhausted all other state and federal energy assistance.
  • Received a shutoff notice or the service has already been disconnected; and
  • Documented household income at or below 300 percent of federal poverty guidelines. To qualify, a customer’s yearly gross household income can be up to $43,740 for one person; $59,160 for two; $74,580 for three; $90,000 for four; $105,420 for five; $120,840 for six; $136,260 for seven; and $151,680 for eight.

Dominion Energy works with the Salvation Army offices to accept EnergyShare applications and to administer distribution of the funds. Dominion Energy covers the program’s administrative costs, so every dollar contributed to this fund goes to pay recipients’ heating bills.

The program runs from Dec. 1, 2023, through May 31, 2024, or until funds are exhausted. EnergyShare is supported by donations from Dominion Energy customers, employees and EnergyShare partners.

How to Contribute: Mail a check for any amount (made payable to "EnergyShare") to EnergyShare, The Salvation Army, P.O. Box 5847, Cleveland, OH 44101.

EnergyShare is in its 23rd year in Ohio and has raised more than $9 million, helping more than 96,000 people in its first 22 years in the state. During the 2022-23 heating season, more than 4,500 people received EnergyShare assistance.
