Electric Assistance Program

The Electric Assistance Program can help income eligible customers pay their electric bills.

Program Contents

The statewide Electric Assistance Program (EAP) provides qualifying customers with a discount on their monthly electric bill. The New Hampshire Legislature authorized funding for this statewide program as part of electric utility deregulation. All electric utility ratepayers support the statewide EAP through the System Benefits Charge (SBC) portion of their electric bill. The utilities are working with Community Action Agencies (CAAs) located throughout the state to identify and enroll eligible customers for the statewide EAP.

The discount is based on the gross household income and the household size. Eligibility for the program is also determined by gross household income and household size.
