Power of Community - Pedernales Electric Cooperative

PEC Power of Change round up program

Power of Change

The PEC Power of Change program gives you the opportunity to make the place you love to live even better. Participating members' electric bills are rounded up to the nearest dollar, and the funds are awarded to eligible area nonprofits through a competitive application process.

Read about the community organizations that recently benefited from Power of Change funds.

You can enroll on your electric bill payment slip (example) or by logging in to SmartHub. Each allows for recurring round-up or fixed contributions. Round-up contributors can expect to give an average of just 49 cents per month, but together, our change can change lives!
