LCEC introduces Power to Share by Rounding Up Program to help those in need

June 23, 2021 – LCEC is proud to announce the launch of the Power to Share by Rounding Up Program. This program is an expansion of our current Power to Share program which was created in 2009 to assist financially strained customers having difficulty making electric bill payments through a partnership between LCEC and the United Way. This short-term emergency assistance is available to qualifying customers within the LCEC service territory, and the program is funded through donations by LCEC employees, business partners, and customers.

Power to Share by Rounding Up expands the current program by providing participating customers with the opportunity to round up their monthly electric bill to the nearest dollar. This makes it easy to donate. For example, a bill of $150.25 would be rounded up to $151.00. The additional $0.75 will be allocated to the Power to Share Program. Customers can also add an additional monthly contribution or make a one-time donation to their bill. Excluding additional donations, the maximum year contribution per customer is just $12!

One-hundred percent of the donated funds are allocated to the Power to Share Program and administered by United Way to help pay the electric bill of someone in need. Customers can enroll through the LCEC SmartHub, online at, or over the phone at 239-656-2300 with an LCEC Customer Care Professional. If a customer decides to opt-out later, they can simply use the same enrollment channels to do so.
