From helping to pay their energy bills to giving the gift of energy, Pepco’s Gift of Energy program provides customers options to help ease the financial impacts of the pandemic.

The program allows anyone to purchase credits for Pepco customers — including family and friends — that go toward their energy bills. The Gift of Energy is an easy way to alleviate an energy bill for a loved one or even a local business. All that is needed is the customer’s name and address or phone number associated with the account. The gift will appear on the recipient’s future energy bill as a credit.

“We want to remind our customers that we are here to help you,” said Donna Cooper, Pepco region president. “At this time, we are all looking for additional ways to support our local communities. We’ve suspended service disconnections, waived new late payment charges and more. But it’s also important to empower support within our communities. Through the Gift of Energy, we can help our customers help their friends, families, neighbors or even a local business.”

Those interested in making a purchase can do so online at or by calling 202-833-7500.
