Deferred Payment Program - If you can demonstrate a hardship and have outstanding bills, our deferred payment plan allows you to pay your bill over an extended period of time.

Your tax deductible Energy Share donations are completely managed and distributed by The Salvation Army. One hundred percent of all donations are used to help families and individuals in need.
