*You will receive a receipt for the tax deductible portion of your bill
What is the “utility profit” that is donated to my favorite charity?
You will see a line item on your electric bill for energy charges that are charged by our retail electric provider. This charge includes a 10% mark-up of our cost of providing the electric power (or what we refer to as the “utility profit”), which is the portion of your bill that will be paid to your favorite charity.
We are a Broker of Electricity
Charity+Power is a broker of electricity. This means that we do not take title to the power before it is sold to you. This minimizes our risk and allows us to focus on our mission. As a broker, we have been able to negotiate significant discounts from our suppliers, which allows us to remain competitive with your utility provider and, at the same time, provide a donation to your favorite charity. Because we are a broker, you will not see our name on your utility bill. Instead, you will see the name of the supplier you selected, who will be acting on your behalf with your utility provider.
