Energy Assistance

SCI REMC works closely with Community Action (or CAP) agencies, as well as township trustees to obtain assistance for our members who are having difficulties paying their electric bills. EAP is a low-income energy assistance program made available through the Indiana Division of Family and Children.

Resources to Help You With Energy Costs
