EnergyShare®

EnergyShare

EnergyShare® helps those who need it most.

EnergyShare® is Dominion Energy's energy assistance program of last resort for anyone who faces financial hardships from unemployment or family crisis. Last year, EnergyShare® spent more than $5 million to assist customers in need.

The program helps qualified customers facing financial hardship stay warm in the winter and cool in the summer.

Payments and Funding

Payments go directly to energy vendors and every cent donated goes to benefit those in need because Dominion Energy and social service agencies pay for the program's administrative expenses.

Funds come from tax-deductible donations from customers, stockholders, employees, EnergyShare Partners and Dominion Energy. Funds are distributed through a network of nonprofit health and human service agencies.
