    Rocky Mountain Power is making it easy to help struggling families stay warm and keep the lights on.

    This month, customers who receive their bills by mail will find it includes a Lend A Hand contribution envelope. The Lend A Hand program, administered by the Salvation Army, helps limited-income customers keep their utilities on. Customers who pay their bills electronically can request a donation envelope or enroll in the fixed donation program, said the company in an email.

    Rocky Mountain Power said it will match all contributions with $2 for each $1 donated to the program. Last year, these donations helped over 750 households in need throughout Utah.

    “We appreciate our customers’ generous support for this great program,” said George Humbert, Rocky Mountain Power director of regional business management. “These donations are helping the elderly, disabled individuals and struggling families in our community.”

    The fixed donation program allows customers to donate any dollar amount, starting at $1 per month, which is then incorporated into their monthly bill.

    Fixed donations will also be matched 2-for-1 by Rocky Mountain Power. All donations are forwarded directly to the Salvation Army, which verifies eligibility and allocates funds to those in need.

    Customers who need bill assistance can call Rocky Mountain Power representatives at 1-888-221-7070 to get help with payment plans and be directed to other agencies that can assist them.
