Giving Back

Give a gift that keeps on giving

Enroll in PEC’s Power of Change program

You don’t have to move mountains to make a positive impact — it only takes a little to help. And we know there is no one more willing to help their communities than our members. With the average monthly contribution of just $0.49 (or less than $6 a year), members enrolled in the Power of Change program have donated more than $130,000 since 2019!

“We are thankful to have hardworking nonprofits committed to making our communities better places to live for all of us,” PEC Community Relations Coordinator Caroline Tinsley Porter said. “PEC is proud and grateful to have a membership willing to support the important work these nonprofits do.”

Enroll in PEC’s Power of Change program to help support local nonprofits that help brighten your community. Make a one-time donation of any amount, or simply opt to round up your monthly electric bill to the nearest dollar. Enroll by checking the box on your electric bill return slip, by using the PEC SmartHub app, or by going to our website at pec.coop/power-of-change. You can also call 888-554-4732, Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.
