Pepco Kicks Off Annual 'Gift of Energy' Program

WASHINGTON - Some Pepco customers may have difficulty paying their monthly energy bills this holiday season because of the sluggish economy. To help those customers, Pepco offers a Gift of Energy program.

Gift of energy payments can be made in person, by cash, check or money order, at one of the company's participating walk-in offices. Additionally, the company offers a mail-in payment option on fliers it is distributing to social service agencies and community-based shelters located throughout its service territory. The program, which is available to both Maryland and District of Columbia customers, launches today and runs through January 15, 2011.

The way it works is simple:

  • Visit a Pepco Customer Service Center,
  • Provide the cashier with the name and address of the person for whom you're buying the gift of energy,
  • Make a payment on that special someone's account;
  • Receive a free holiday greeting card to give to that special someone, compliments of Pepco.
