CEMC, in cooperation with local energy assistance agencies, offers the Project Help program. The program allows members to contribute an additional $1.00 on their electric bills each month to help pay the utility bills of the elderly, disabled and/or those who are not economically self-sufficient. Project Help is a voluntary program. All money collected from Project Help goes to energy assistance agencies in our communities that determine how these special funds are distributed.
