Energy Assistance

COVID-19 Assistance

Blachly-Lane Electric Co-op is owned by its 2,835 members and very different from the big utilities who need one-size-fits-all solutions in times of community crisis. We will customize our support to members in need during this COVID-19 event. When members experience economic stress, we work with them to make case-by-case payment arrangements. If you find yourself unable to pay your bill, it is important to call us at 541-688-8711 and we will work together. We are committed to assist our members in ways that help now and will keep them from owing a big bill they cannot pay later. Please inquire at 541-688-8711 about any financial assistance that may be available at this time.


Blachly-Lane Energy Share (BLES)
*Open November - March* The BLES program assists members in our service area who may be facing difficult times with energy costs.  BLES offers a one-time payment of $275 during a 12 month period.  The member must meet income guidelines to be eligible. Please call 541-688-8711 for more information.

The Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) 
LIHEAP is a federally funded program that is administered by Lane County with the help of other area agencies.  This program can help households that heat with electricity, natural gas, oil, propane, wood pellets or wood.  If you qualify, LIHEAP makes a one-time payment directly to your utility account.  Eligibility is based on current income and doesn’t include assets or savings.  Appointments are available on a first-come, first served basis. For more information regarding LIHEAP, see this flier or call the numbers below.
