Help for Neighbors in Need

EnergyShare raises money for customers who have fallen behind on their bills and need help to keep the lights and heat on. Recipients of these donations can combine them with other assistance, such as the Home Energy Assistance Program. 

How to Help Others

EnergyShare is funded by tax-deductible contributions from caring Con Edison customers, employees, businesses, and foundations. We match every dollar contributed.

How to Donate

  1. Check the EnergyShare box on your bill to add $1 to the total amount due. That dollar will be donated automatically.
  2. Set up a one-time or monthly donation online.
  3. Send a check to HeartShare.
