Energy Assistance Program (EAP)

-Alameda Municipal Power's (AMP) Energy Assistance Program (EAP) offers our eligible residential low-income customers a 25% discount on their monthly energy costs.

  • The low-income discount does not apply to the Utility Users Tax or any other applicable fees or taxes. It is applied only to the energy and customer charges.
  • Customers who receive the low-income discount are not eligible to participate in AMP's EASE Program.
  • Customers who qualify for both the low-income discount and the medical discount should apply for the low-income discount as it provides the most comprehensive benefits. Customers may not receive both discounts.
