We care about helping our community members in need. We developed several programs to assist you in paying your power bill. Explore the options below to see if you are eligible.
A program in partnership with the Salvation Army, Project SHARE helps pay the wintertime energy bills of low-income Alabamians who are age 60 or older and/or disabled. During the summer, people with medical emergencies also may be assisted, if funds are available. If you are wanting to request energy assistance through Project SHARE, you can apply at your local Salvation Army office or by calling 205-328-2420. If you are an Alabama Power customer wanting to help others, you can donate by checking the "Project SHARE" box on your Alabama Power bill to contribute $1, $2, $5, $10 or any other whole-dollar amount you choose each month.
Alabama Power stockholders created the nonprofit ABC Trust in 1992 to supplement energy assistance efforts. The trust works with local community action agencies to help cover the cost of heating and cooling for low-income families and those struggling with temporary financial problems. Customers interested in ABC Trust programs can contact the community action agency in their county.
