During the winter, some Chattanooga area families struggle to pay utilities like heat and water - but that struggle doesn't end with the warmer weather. The loss of a job or other financial emergency can happen at any time.
Power Share is a year-round program that provides support for Chattanooga area families in need. The program is made possible by EPB customers who contribute funds through monthly electric power bills, or by making a pledge.
Where does the Power Share money go?
All donated funds are given to United Way of Greater Chattanooga. United Way's 2-1-1 qualifies local families and individuals for electrical utilities assistance and uses 100% of the donated Power Share funds to pay their electric bills. No checks or cash are given directly to individuals or families.
The generosity of EPB customers accounts for more than half of the Power Share funds available to United Way each year, and yet families are still turned away each month due to a lack of funding.
Ways to give:
- Simply add a donation of exactly $1 to the total amount due on your next electric power bill.
- You can sign up online to make your monthly pledge to Power Share. Your monthly pledge will be added to your electric power bill.
- Please contact EPB at (423) 648-1EPB (1372) to set up the pledge. Once your request has been processed, it should appear on your next electric power bill.
- You can also make a one-time pledge by mailing a check to:
