Rocky Mountain Power is calling on customers to Lend a Hand to people in need

SALT LAKE CITY — Rocky Mountain Power this month is offering a simple way for Utahns to help struggling families stay warm and safe during the winter.

The company will add $2 for every dollar donated by customers to the Lend A Hand program, which helps limited-income customers keep their homes warm and their lights on.

In 2020, Rocky Mountain Power donations helped more than 1,600 people in need throughout the company’s service areas in Utah, Idaho and Wyoming.

“These donations are helping seniors, disabled individuals and working families throughout our community,” said Lucky Morse, Rocky Mountain Power director of community relations. “We are very grateful to our customers for their generous support for this wonderful program.”

Lend A Hand contribution envelopes will be included for customers who receive their monthly bill by mail. Those who pay electronically can request a donation envelope and send a check or enroll in the fixed donation program.

The Lend A Hand program lets customers contribute any dollar amount, starting at $1 per month, which is then added to their monthly bill. Rocky Mountain Power will also match fixed donations 2-for-1. Customers can enroll and/or request a contribution envelope by calling 1-888-221-7070.

Every contribution is forwarded directly to the Salvation Army, which confirms recipient eligibility then distributes funds to those in need who qualify.

Customers in need of assistance can also call Rocky Mountain Power at 1-888-221-7070 to receive help with payment plans or be connected with other agencies that may be able to address their needs.
