Using energy efficiently and keeping costs down is especially important when you’re on a limited income. SCE&G supports programs sponsored by local energy offices (e.g. Office of Economic Opportunity) throughout South Carolina to help customers that need extra help in managing their energy costs.
Since the program began in 1983, more than 5,800 homes have been weatherized, which included caulking, weather-stripping, painting, insulating and replacing windows and doors to make them more weather tight.
To be eligible, families must meet the federal government standards of a low-income household. The criteria changes yearly. Contact your local community action agency to apply.
