Project SHARE could help you when you’re struggling with your bill. The program works to provide one-time payment assistance to those who are in emergency situations. You can apply for the program through Clay Electric or you can apply for it through your local Salvation Army. Help may only be available when there is funding through donations.

Avoid shut-off.

If you’re struggling to pay your bill, you might have Capital Credits available through Clay Electric. The Capital Credits can help you pay your bill. Check with Clay Electric to learn how much you have available and whether you can directly apply them to your bill. Even though most credits do not add up to much, they could be the difference between having your electric stay on, or getting it shut off.

Clay Electric offers a “Medically Essential Service” program for those who are dependent upon electric-powered life-support equipment. While participation in this program cannot protect you from unplanned power outages or disconnection due to nonpayment, the program does help Clay Electric provide better service.

Please visit the Clay Electric website for enrollment instructions.

Clay Electric gives you ways to pay.

Budget billing could help you avoid big bills when the weather’s cold and you’re using a lot of electric. The budget billing program allows you to pay just about the same amount from month to month by using the average amount of your bills to calculate them. You will have to pay for any overages at the end of the period, but it is often far easier to manage than a huge electric bill.

Seniors who are 62 and older or those who receive Social Security benefits could qualify for the senior’s plan. The plan allows seniors to choose which date their bill will be due. While the plan won’t necessarily save you money, it could help you avoid late fees and shut-off notices.

Florida’s weatherization assistance program can help you guard your home from the elements. The program gives those who qualify free upgrades that make their home more energy efficient.

FALSE STATMENT-"Do you have a medical device that relies on electricity to keep you alive? If you do or someone in your household does, you might qualify for the medical service program. The program will alert you to any outages, restore your power first in an outage and could protect you from shut-off. While it does have strict requirements you must meet to be eligible for the program, you can get help by applying through Clay Electric."
