Residential Energy Assistance Program (REAP)
Imperial Irrigation District’s Residential Energy Assistance Program (REAP) provides income-qualifying customers with a 20 percent discount on their electric bill. IID also offers a 30 percent REAP discount to qualifying seniors age 62 or older. Participants who are 62 or older will need to reapply for REAP every two years, while all other participants must reapply annually. It is the customer’s responsibility to renew the application. The income guidelines are as follows:
|Maximum Household Income (Effective as of Jan. 1, 2018)|
|No. in Household||Combined Annual Household Income|
|Each Additional Person||$7,315|
To establish eligibility you must complete the enclosed application and return it, along with any supporting proof of income (such as pay stubs, Social Security statements or other income information). This is required for each adult in residence. Applicants may receive the discount only after IID verifies the application. The applicant must be the customer of record with IID and cannot be claimed on another person’s Income Tax Return as a dependent.
If you are eligible, contact IID’s customer service department to make sure your account information is correct by calling 1-800-303-7756 or by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
