As in the past, households will sign up directly with NSEDC and should see their savings in their monthly electric bills by mid-April. This direct subsidy from NSEDC is in addition to (and separate from) those issued by member community municipalities in late 2022 through a different NSEDC grant program.
“I am happy that the NSEDC Board of Directors was again able to prioritize funding for the Energy Subsidy in 2023,” said NSEDC Board Chairman Frank Katchatag. “With inflation impacting everything from food to fuel, we know that this assistance is likely even more important this year in helping households make ends meet during the long winter.”
To receive the electric utility energy subsidy, households must submit an application to NSEDC between February 9 and March 17.
