Dominion Energy Helps Families in Crisis; Launches its 2022-23 EnergyShare® Program with the Salvation Army

EnergyShare helps families who are experiencing financial hardships through unemployment or family crisis.

CLEVELAND, Dec. 15 -- Dominion Energy Ohio announced that local Salvation Army offices are now 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 $23,783 for one person; $32,043 for two; $40,303 for three; $48,563 for four; $56,823 for five; $65,083 for six; $73,342 for seven; and $81,603 for eight. Add $7,945 for each additional person.

Dominion Energy works with the Salvation Army offices to accept EnergyShare applications and to administer distribution of the funds. Dominion Energy covers the programs administrative costs, so every dollar contributed to this fund goes to pay recipients’ heating bills. The program runs from Dec. 1, 2022 through May 31, 2023, or until funds are exhausted.

EnergyShare is supported by donations from Dominion Energy customers, employees and EnergyShare partners.

How to Contribute: Simply add $1, $2, $6, $12, $18, or $36 to the amount due on your bill. Overpayments in these exact amounts are automatically recognized as a contribution and will be documented on your next bill. Or, mail a check for any amount (made payable to "EnergyShare") to EnergyShare, The Salvation Army, and P.O. Box 5847, Cleveland, OH 44101.

EnergyShare is in its 21st year in Ohio and has raised more than $8.5 million, helping more 92,000 people in its first 21 years in the state. During the 2021-22 heating season, more than 2,500 people received EnergyShare assistance.
