Power of Change

For less than $6* a year, you can makes things brighter right here in our community.

Join our Power of Change program to automatically round up your PEC bill to the nearest dollar for local nonprofits. All contributions go toward community grants and educational support, and we vet recipient organizations so you can be sure the funds will be used to make our community stronger.

You can enroll in recurring round-up or fixed contributions on your electric bill payment slip (example), by calling 888-554-4732, visiting any PEC office or by logging in to SmartHub. Learn more about some of the community organizations that have benefited from Power of Change funds.

*The average monthly contribution is $0.49.
